“…visceral choreography captures Medea’s grief-fuelled fury at Jason’s betrayal of her like a blast of heat from a furnace. As she contorts herself in maddened grief, she’s mesmeric.”   – fest, Edinburgh Scotland
“From the simple flick of a wrist to the wild thrashing of her head, each movement is carefully choreographed and delivered with primal emotion. The result is almost frightening at times.”
 A Differing View, Edinburgh Scotland
“Yokko’s transformation into Medea is breath-taking: profound, tormented, physical, truly esoteric and poetic. The show is not for the faint-hearted!”
Female Arts, Edinburgh Scotland
