My overall impression

In this beautifully heart-warming solo show, New York based writer/performer Yokko boldly tells the story of a young Japanese girl struggling to find herself, while living under the roof of a traditional martial arts family dominated by an overbearing, abusive father. Despite a longing for unconditional paternal love and acceptance, she perseveres, and with the spirit and discipline of a warrior, proves that she need only love herself to be enough and thrive! Yokko shows that true strength comes from having the ability to show your vulnerability…Because no battle is won without humility. If you do nothing else this month, SEE THIS SHOW! It has the kind of humanity and heart that make a trip to the LA Fringe well worth your while!!!!
