The Yokohama Theatre Group is proud to announce YES THIS NIGHT, a midwinter double bill. Both shows have won awards internationally, and YTG is thrilled that we can bring them to Kanagawa prefecture for three short nights in February.
Award-winning playwright and performer Haley McGee is bringing her newest show “I’m Doing This For You” to Japan. Directed by award-winning director Mitchell Cushman, this show is a must-see for anyone who wants to see some of the best that the Canadian theater scene has to offer. Blending storytelling, live-art and improvisation, this performance is a big romantic gesture made by a woman for a man.
“Space Hippo” is an adventure-comedy science-fiction show with a hint of social satire. It uses over 200 intricately cut shadow puppets projected onto a large screen to create the feeling of watching a live animated movie. The puppeteers sit in front of the audience, underneath the screen so that the audience can see the puppeteers bring the puppets to life.
