Little Miss Hiccup

Shoshinz is the name of Yanomi’s theatre production company. It roughly translates to “shy, timid people” in English, however when I met with playwright Yanomi, her costume and head covered in flowers revealed anything BUT. She’s performing during the Vancouver International Fringe Festival, currently on through September 19.

Yanomi has starred in numerous theater productions in Tokyo (and around Japan) and has travelled to Canada, Egypt, Russia, Iran, and many countries across Asia.

    So far i have seen about a dozen fringe shows and hers was easily the most compelling. Miss Hiccup has now once and for all finally answered the question.. \What if genetic material from Charlie Chaplin, Jerry Lewis and Jim Carrey somehow got into the hands of a mad scientist in Japan?\ Wide eyed and innocently discovering the world around her, she reminds us simple physical comedy is still a high art. If adorable Miss Hiccup had been my kindergarten teacher, i would be a very different person today. Artfully playing with music and silence and engaging the audience throughout, she chose an audience member (lucky me!) to actually play a game of catch with her eyeball. Meticulously performed, filled with crazy surprises and big laughs, this is my pick of the fringe. Where were the kids? Kids of all ages would LOVE this show.. Please come back to the Fringe again.

    Hi Chance,

    So far I’ve seen many shows and enjoyed about 90% of them. Glad you enjoyed Miss Hiccup! I am looking forward to her Sunday evening show and by the sound of your review, we should all be in for a treat! Thanks for your comment.
