WORK-IN-PROGRESS Deadly She-Wolf Assassin at Armageddon!
Music & concept by Fred Ho
Friday & Saturday, April 29 – 30
Music & concept by Fred Ho, written by Fred Ho & Ruth Margraff. An homage to the 1970s samurai manga & movie series Lone Wolf and Cub (Kozure Ookami)
With unique multi-martial arts choreography and a glorious score fusing traditional Japanese music and soul-jazz, composer-creator Fred Ho joins forces with playwright Ruth Margraff to create his latest theatrical event blending live music, sword fights, state-of-the-art visual design and marital arts performance. Director Sonoko Kawahara and martial arts choreographer Tsuyoshi Kaseda collaborate on this story of deception, revenge, double crossing and death, following a violent and beautiful assassin, like a deadly she-wolf, the last of her kind. This work-in-progress pays homage to the 1970s raging cult hit Japanese manga series Lone Wolf and Cub (Kozure Ookami), which has inspired many other adaptations and works in comic books and film over the past few decades. This event features excerpted performances and an in-depth discussion with the artists.
