What I liked

Costumes, lighting, and sound design added so much to Yokko’s inspired performance. Blending of the beautiful and the grotesque. Really creative use of languages.

What I didn't like

The audio was a little loud at one or two points, overpowering the speaking. But nothing major.

My overall impression

Simply brilliant. A display of raw emotion. Yokko’s complete control over her body was captivating. If you enjoy getting to see unique artforms at Fringe, this is a can’t miss!
