Butoh Medea performance by guest artist Yokko 
Saturday, March 2, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. 
Black Box Theatre, Performing Arts Center

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.

Butoh Medea was premiered at United Solo 2014 and received four awards including Best One-Woman Show. It was selected to perform in Warsaw, Poland (United Solo Europe (2015) Teatre, Syrena), toured Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, and was nominated forThe Asian Arts Award. The show has been touring across the USA and Europe (Poland, Scotland, Italy, Turkey, Germany, and Czech Republic) since then.
