Hunted (2003) by Maiko Bae Yamamoto

Hunted is a visually stunning work of physical theatre inspired by the art and stories found in Japanese comic books. Hunted is conceived and directed by Maiko Bae Yamamoto, a former Artistic Associate of Urban Ink and co-founder of the critically acclaimed boca del lupo theatre, and features a dynamic cast of some of Canada’s most exciting theatre makers including J Patricia Collins, James Long, Julie Tamiko Manning, Raugi Yu, Spencer Herbert and Marie Clements.

A young woman wakes up in a hospital bed with no recollection of how she ended up there… or who she is. The next few days take her on a journey through alleyways and seedy nightclubs as she traces her history back into the labyrinth of sewers rotting beneath the city. Slowly, bits of her life are forced upon her through memories and encounters with shadows from her past shadows bearing a horrifying and irrevocable truth.
