Hide Your Fires:Butoh Lady Macbeth brings the audience alongside the accursed spirit of Lady Macbeth to experience her nightmare of stifled ambition, unfulfilled desire, and ultimate loss. Telling the story solely through her perspective, this production fuses Japanese Butoh dance, movement, and various texts to take you inside the mind and body of one of Shakespeare's most famous villains.

"Hide Your Fires is a show that is not to be missed. While there are hundreds of shows to choose from at the Fringe and countless opportunities to see new adaptions of Macbeth, there is absolutely nothing else like this piece, and no Lady Macbeth like Yokko’s. Count yourself among the lucky if you land a ticket before she sells out."

"Last year Yokko and her New York based company Ren Gyo Soh impressed all who saw her Butoh Medea based on the Greek tragedy by Euripides. This year’s offering, on stage at the The Lounge Theatre for HFF19, is somewhat less successful but staggeringly more ambitious."
