Theatre of Yugen, San Francisco presents Sorya! 2014 for its 35th Anniversary

As one of the few female artistic directors of any size theater, Yuriko Doi was an innovator beyond the carefully scripted, East-West fusion work she brought to Western audiences at Theatre Of Yugen. As one of a very few classically trained female Noh and Kyogen expert practitioners, Ms. Doi developed her signature work involving the blending of other cultures with Japanese traditional theater styles in such works as Blood Wine, Blood Wedding, a Kabuki-Flamenco collaboration; Bright and Gifted, in partnership with the experimental playwright Erik Ehn and her groundbreaking Noh Christmas Carol, a Company staple for many years.

Now retired as Founding Artistic Director of the company she established in San Francisco in 1978, Doi returns to Theatre of Yugen this spring to perform in the Company’s annual SORYA! Festival. This year’s event marks the Company’s 35th year, and is presided over by the Company’s current Artistic Director Jubilith Moore.

Performers for this year’s festival are Sheila Berotti, Sheila Devitt, Yuriko Doi, Alexander Lydon, Karen Marek, Jubilith Moore and Lluis Valls.

Performance Dates: March 15-24
