YTG Presents: The Full Gamut

| Theater , Yokohama

The Yokohama Theatre Group (YTG) presents The Full Gamut, a double bill of physical theater shows performed back-to-back, from September 18 to 19, 2016. Both shows contain very little spoken language, making them ideal even for non-English speakers.

A Day in the Life of Miss Hiccup

This is a hilarious and beautiful story by award-winning clown and performer Yanomi. The mysterious Miss Hiccup lives alone, but is definitely not lonely. She's forever accompanied by a raucous cast of sounds and music that make her life an absurd adventure!

A Day in the Life of Miss Hiccup has been touring the world since 2010, and has received numerous rave reviews. Monday Magazine of Victoria, Canada acclaimed, "It’s not often you run across a show that is satisfying for adults, kids, performers and stoners of all ages, but that’s exactly what you get with this charming and quite often hilarious fast-paced slice of Tokyo clowning."

Touch Me Not

Touch Me Not is directed by Tania Coke, a YTG associate artist and co-director of Tarinainanika, a corporeal mime troupe based near Hatagaya Station in Tokyo.

Featuring YTG ensemble members Andrew Woolner and Naoe Kawamoto, the production focuses on a filmmaker struggling to detach himself from his past, weaving together the sweep of a broom and the execution of a hero, the whirring of a film projector and the strumming of a guitar, the poetry of the greats and the word “farewell.”

Tickets are available for one or both shows. While Miss Hiccup is perfect for all ages, Touch Me Not is rather introspective for little ones.
