1000: Prayer of 1000 years (Saotome)

A portrait of Saotome in his role in the wordless music drama, "Prayer of 1000 years", a story set in the Yoshiwara "Pleasure quarter" of old Tokyo.

In an interview at the announcement of this production, Saotome comments on the important part played by an actor's eyes, illustrated well in this dramatic pose.

Saotome Taichi is a very young actor (born 1991) who grew up in theatre, his father being head of the Gekidan Sujaku troupe. From an early age he showed a talent as an onnagata, that is, a male actor who plays female roles. In addition to stage roles, he has also appeared in two films directed by Takeshi Kitano. His stage name is a combination of a fairly common family name Saotome, which means "Maiden" approximately, and a very masculine given name Taichi.
