Theatre of Yugen / DAH Teatr – DOGSBODY in San Francisco

THEATRE OF YUGEN

Known for their use of 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 by award-winning playwright Erik Ehn and directed

by Dijana Milosevic, founder of DAH Teatar of Serbia. Neither docudrama

nor overt political propaganda, Dogsbody examines war and genocide from

the point of view of child soldiers, by evoking a frightening vision of the

not-so-distant future.
