World Premiere!
Theatre of Yugen

Known for their use of dense, poetic text set to contemporary music, San Francisco’s venerable Theatre of Yugen creates a unique and imaginative fusion of traditional Japanese theater with a western sensibility that is at once ancient and avant-garde. YBCA is delighted to commission the world premiere of Dogsbody, an adaptation of The Iliad by award-winning playwright Erik Ehn and directed by Dijana Milosevic, founder of DAH Teatar of Serbia. Neither docudrama nor overt political propaganda, Dogsbody challenges the concept of child soldiers as a regrettable phenomenon, by evoking a frightening vision of America in the not-so-distant future.
