Meet the cast ! Ilana Labourene
We have interviewed each of the Disturbance cast members for you to get to know them.
Going first : Ilana Labourene.
Tell us briefly about your
work as an artist... I have been performing on stage since I was a child, performing in plays, musical theatre, dance, or other musical performances. Over the past few years I have been further developing my musical abilities as a recording artist, and producing a variety show in Tokyo.
What is your role in ‘Disturbance’? Apart from the chorus, I will be portraying the Mistress.
What attracts you about ‘Disturbance’? I love the abstract format of this show. Creating a play from a book of poems allows for that style, and it is a truly unique production.
What are some of your favourite staged performances you’ve ever seen or been in? Here in Tokyo, CITA really specializes in original, abstract theatrical productions that I just love and appreciate. TIP does some really amazing work. "Diary of Anne Frank" was very beautifully done. My own experiences performing in "Hand to God" and "Rocky Horror Show" were just awesome!
Anything else you want to tell us about?
I’ll be studying musical theatre in London this summer, and I’m really looking forward to the experience. I am excited to bring back to Tokyo my freshly-filled tool box!
