“Yu-Fo is so deliberately, deliciously strange and so wildly off the wall that this is decidedly not the week for fans of conventional theatre to be haunting Performance Works.”Vancouver Sun

YU-FO by Theatre Replacement that brings together an exciting group of collaborators to further the company’s artistic practice and creation methodology. Conceived and written by Theatre Replacement’s artistic director Maiko Bae Yamamoto, YU-FO follows the interactions one fateful night between a Canadian man and the mysterious Japanese woman he encounters at a side-of-the-road diner off the breathtaking Sea-to-Sky highway in BC.
