[dropcap]1[/dropcap]Tell us about your show.

I’m a one woman physical theatre, and I hope my performance will remind you of your childhood. The story is a bizzarre adventure of a mysterious creature wandering the world looking for it`s daddy. This story is inspired by my own childhood memories as I lost my own mother early, but I still have lots of beautiful childhood memories that I cherish. For example, I still find myself being afraid of thunderstorms, yet I am still amazed by many of the beauties in this world. I think in our childhoods we all had many experiences of surprise, fear, and moments of bravery.

[dropcap]2[/dropcap]Why should someone come see your show?

My show is totally different from others and I think you will remember something very precious from your own childhood. Even Japanese people have never seen a show of this kind.  I’ve been often described as a clown despite having never been formally trained as a clown. It’s a physical theatre with lots of stunning sound effects, music and props, but is very different from pantomime. I do what I think is beautiful, funny and always hope to create that is something truly universal.

[dropcap]3[/dropcap]If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own what show would that be?

Vaudevillian! I am a big fan of James Joran! He is one of the true artists whom we all need to see in this world!
