Exclusive Photo Flash: First Look at Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Bunkamura Theatre Cocoon: PLUTO at Barbican Theatre

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Bunkamura Theatre Cocoon presents Pluto 8 -11 Feb 2018 at Barbican Theatre.

Broadway World has an exclusive look below!

In a genre-defying show honouring the Japanese art form of manga, sensational visual effects, impactful storytelling and performances of physical grace enliven this iconic Astro Boy tale.

Depicting a universe where people and robots both coexist and find themselves in conflict, Pluto engages audiences with far-reaching themes that ask what it means to be human. Starring skilled Japanese actors alongside dancers and elaborate puppet creations, the arresting staging is characterised by scale, energy and graphics faithful to the original comic book.

A striking 2003 reinterpretation of Astro Boy for the modern age, by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki, Pluto is directed by Belgian choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui in his first full-length theatre production.
