Jorogumo: The Spider Woman
This May, ImproMafia calls on the ghosts of the dead
Performed Sunday May 20th 2012 - see the photographic evidence on Facebook
From exotic fox maidens and seductive spirits to cannibal ogres and spider monsters, Jorogumo touched on the ethereal and eerie side of Eastern fairy tales and ghostly lore - and explored Japanese culture through the eyes of geisha girls, monks and samurai.
But with each successive tale of love, murder and revenge, the room grew ever darker as ghostly figures awake from their slumber and descend upon the theatre. A restless summer wind is blowing - the spirits of the dead were summoned, adn they were not happy...
Jorogumo: The Spider Woman proved an atmospheric, ghostly and enthralling addition to the 2012 season.
