YUBIWA Hotel is not just for the eyes– it stimulates all five senses. — Mainichi Newspaper

What are little girls really made of? Underneath the sugary frills and lace, does there lie the erotic, grotesque and violent? The ground-breaking performance company led by director Shirotama Hitsujiya (recognized as one of “The World’s 100 Most Influential Japanese Women” by Newsweek Japan, June 2006) weaves an ineffable journey through the vivid wasteland of girlhood in its latest work CANDIES: girlish hardcore, which premiered in the UK in early 2006. Transcending conventional definitions of dance and theater, the work of YUBIWA Hotel is characterized by a relentless attempt to re-imagine and represent the issues of contemporary womanhood in Japan through a spectacle of interwoven dance, text, mask and lush costumes. 

Tickets: $28; $22 Japan Society members.  Purchase tickets online below or call the Box Office at (212) 715-1258.
