Dwight Sora in “The Ghost Is Here”

Chicago Aikido Club member Dwight Sora will be appearing onstage in Vitalist Theatre’s production of The Ghost is Here by Japanese author and playwright Kobo Abe. Kobo Abe’s rarely-produced 1957 epic play examines the impact of war upon a culture and a nation. Set in the ruins of post-World War II Japan, at a moment in history when the nation was forced to redefine itself as a country, the play uses original music, stylized song and dance, and a multicultural cast to bring Abe’s story to life with a “Tokyo boogie woogie” beat. As Japan’s people reinvent themselves in the midst of monumental challenges, The Ghost is Here echoes in modern day America.
