FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
A Double Bill Premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival
HANJO/LEFT TO TELL
One Woman Waits For Her Lover, Another For Her Killer
Los Angeles, CA (May 23, 2012) – Raw, physical, erotic, harrowing, and transcendent. On June 7, 9, 17, 18, and 22, RedSoil Theater Company will perform two haunting stories from Japan and Rwanda, Yukio Mishima’s Hanjo and an adaptation of Immaculée Ilibagiza’s book Left to Tell. Hanjo/Left to Tell marks RedSoil Theater Company’s debut production and will be performed as apart of the 2012 Hollywood Fringe Festival at the Fringe Blackbox at NOTE.
RedSoil Theater Company presents this double bill performance with unique theatricality that reveals truth through beautiful blend of words and movement. Hanjo/Left to Tell tells the stories of two women, one who waits for her lover and another for her killer.
Hanjo is a story of waiting as an active choice and tells the tragic yet beautiful story of a woman who separated from her lover waits for him to return. But, how long can she wait for someone that may never come? Left to Tell is the true story of a woman’s survival of the 1994 Rwanda genocide. Adapted from a book of the same name by RedSoil Theater Company’s Artistic Director and Hanjo/Left to Tell Director, Eriko Azuma, Left to Tell is a story of forgiveness. “Forgiveness is not always for the ones who’ve done you wrong. Sometimes you forgive for yourself”, says Eriko Azuma.
