Adapting this production from Euripides' Medea and Greek mythology, and using Japanese Butoh Dance and original texts, Yokko brings the spirit of Medea to life. This fusion of Eastern dance and Western drama invites the audience inside Medea’s dark and desperate struggle. Trapped in the underworld, she is forever cursed to relive her tragic journey through love, hate, and ultimate loss.

The accursed spirit of Lady Macbeth invites the audience to experience her nightmare of stifled ambition, unfulfilled desire, and ultimate loss. Telling the story solely through her perspective, this production uses Butoh Dance (Japanese contemporary dance form), movement and various texts to put you inside the mind and body of one of Shakespeare's most famous villains.
