Shakespeare Meets Butoh In HIDE YOUR FIRES: BUTOH LADY MACBETH
Yokko, the Japanese Butoh and theatre artist, returns to Hollywood Fringe Festival this year with her new show, Hide Your Fires: Butoh Lady Macbeth. Yokko has been appearing in the Hollywood Fringe since 2013, and this is the 3rd season participating at this festival. Hide Your Fires: Butoh Lady Macbeth opens on Friday, June 7th, 2019 at The Lounge Theatre - Lounge 1 - 6201 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038.
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.
