What I liked

The sound, lighting, and costume blend together beautifully. The dance is incredible. Yokko is just. So. Good.

What I didn't like

I sometimes wished the movement during her monologues had been as specific as her dancing was. I totally understand the choice, though.

My overall impression

This show is a sacred experience. It’s intricately choreographed, powerfully performed, and deeply moving. It’s like watching a horror story unfold, and deeply empathizing with the monster.
