Born in Toyama Prefecture in 1976. Tanino is the head of theater group Niwa Gekidan Penino, and he is a professional playwright and theater director. He was a Senior Fellow of the Saison Foundation (until 2015). He founded Niwa Gekidan Penino in 2000 while he was attending medical school.

In addition to his own company’s performances, he wrote and directed Chekhov?, which was produced by the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre in January 2011. His portrayal of a beautiful spirit world that is both mad and paper-thin has been well received. In March 2015, he presented a new play, Water Cage, in Germany. In 2016, he received the 60th Kishida Prize for Drama for The Dark Inn. In 2016, he received the Art Encouragement Award from the Kitanippon Shimbun and the Excellence Award at the 71st ACA National Arts Festival.
