Adapting this production from Euripides' Medea and Greek Tragedy, and using Japanese Butoh Dance and original texts, Yokko brings the 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.

Written by Sean Michael Welch and directed by Brian Rhinehart this staging has a distinctive modern feel; with Medea (Yokko) emerging from the darkness to the chatter of a busy mall. It is from there that Medea endures the gauntlet of blows against her as a woman and as a foreigner as she staggers to the play's horrific conclusion.

Absolutely one of the most masterfully intense performances I have ever seen. The emotional power, the beauty of the movement, the excellent sound and music, the way the lighting design painted the stage were all done so professionally and precisely. Great content and execution!
