Two legendary warriors battle. One spares the other's life. They meet again six years later to put an end to their rivalry.

Taking the iconic duel between the Japanese warriors Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojirō in 17th century feudal Japan as its starting point, Musashi marks the the Ninagawa Company's long-awaited return to Singapore after its seven curtain calls at the Singapore Arts Festival in 1992.

Musashi explores the futility of vengeance as two bloodthirsty swordsmen await their final showdown, presented through an animated contemporary Noh and Kyōgen retelling rich with humour and beauty. Starring two of Japan's leading young actors Tatsuya Fujiwara (Death Note) and Junpei Mizobata (BOSS), this highly entertaining and accessible production made its world premiere in Tokyo in 2009 and performed to critical acclaim at the Barbican in London as well as the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York in 2010.
