Directed by Werner Herzog, Sets and Costume design by Eiko Ishioka
Above: Kimonos designed by Eiko for the prostitute characters. As the costume and set designer, Eiko brought her minimalist aesthetic to the lush opera. Her visual tableau was inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e art, the most illustrative cultural source for the Edo era; at the same time abstract touches rendered her design utterly modern. Visually and essentially the opera Chushingura brought a new dimension to this three-hundred-year-old story. - Eiko on Stage
