"Sometimes she is a crumpled ball of terror, sometimes a confident and joyful seductress, sometimes a monstrous, clawing thing, leaning backwards at an angle that does not seem humanly possible. Every moment Yokko moves is intentional, and for this reason it is impossible to look away."- by Nikki Muller

"Hide Your Fires is an amazing piece of art by an amazing artist and I cannot more highly recommend making it part of your Fringe experience."
-Matt Ritchey (Read full review here: "Gia On The Move")
"Her physical embodiment of Lady Macbeth’s tortured, grief and regret-ridden soul is mesmerizing, haunting, and heartbreaking. Her immersion in this character is 100% and you are completely drawn in to this internal struggle, so skillfully externally manifested." -Eric Webb (Read Full Review)
"Absolute genius. You’ll never see a more compelling or disturbing Lady M. Everyone else can just go home, because Yokko pretty much nailed it. Amazing, engrossing, unsettling… everything you’ve wanted this character to be, embodied. -Nikki Muller at Fringe Review site (Read Full Review)
