WHO: Yokko (Choreography, Concept and Performance) Text by Sean Michael Welch & William Shakespeare
WHERE: Lounge Theatre (Lounge 1) 6201 Santa Monica Boulevard
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.
