Abstract: The centennial history of Japanese Shakespearean reception epitomizes new readings and new onstage representations of Shakespeare, which each age has offered according to its need. In the last two decades, the Japanese theatre witnessed increasingly radical reinvention of Shakespeare. In the 1980s, the rediscovery of Shakespeare took the form of bold adaptations, and in the 1990s, intercultural productions among Asian artists have proved their potentiality. As far as Shakespearean productions are concerned, the Japanese theatre has continuously sought its model in the West ; however, it at last begins to question its identity in relation to other Asian partners. At their best, intercultural productions can reflect contemporary Asian conditions in Shakespeare, and also, check further appropriation of Asia, which is almost a customary Western theatrical practice. Since intercultural dramturgy itself has not fully developed yet, this paper aims to consider its possibilities and limits provisionally by examining four productions staged in Tokyo in 1997 and 1998.
