Yayoi Theatre Movement Society
Yayoi Hirano and her company, YAYOI Theatre Movement, have been fixtures on the Vancouver arts scene since relocating from Japan in 2002.
A versatile artist with training in many disciplines and a restless artistic spirit, Yayoi resists being pigeonholed. In addition to her solo mime work, she has collaborated with a wide range of artists on works ranging from Samuel Beckett, to Tomson Highway and Puccini. To mark the 30th Anniversary of Yayoi Theatre Movement, Yayoi is collaborating with cellist Marina Hasselberg on Comedia 2020, a work inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedia.
