Inspired by the Medea myth and Euripides’ great tragedy, and using the Japanese Butoh Dance, Yokko brings the tortured 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.
