#FringeFemmes Check-Ins: Hide Your Fires

by Kate Motzenbacker

Quick peeks at #HFF19’s “Women on the Fringe” by Fringe Femmes who are behind the scenes this year. Click Here for all Check-Ins

Fringe Femmes

WHO: Yokko (Choreography, Concept and Performance) Text by Sean Michael Welch & William Shakespeare

WHAT: Hide Your Fires: Butoh Lady Macbeth

WHERE: Lounge Theatre (Lounge 1) 6201 Santa Monica Boulevard

WHY:

Yokko’s work onstage is nothing short of riveting. She’s created a spare, text-light piece that follows the events of Macbeth in a way that’s both highly physical and mostly focused on Lady Macbeth’s interior life. Honestly, it’s chilling. I’ve seen more than my fair share of Macbeths, and I still couldn’t look away. If Butoh excites you, go see it. If Macbeth turns you off, consider going to see it anyway.
