SHOSHINZ is Japanese for
"shy timid people," but these two surreal Tokyo maids are
subservient to nothing and no one. Their delicate silences and coy
demeanor will lure you in, and then they will bend your mind with
brilliant physical theater, dance, absurd music and song. They will
not clean your house, but they will blow your mind. Yanomi and Kuronatsu
of SHOSHINZ have starred in numerous theater productions in Tokyo
and elsewhere in Japan, and have toured Canada, Egypt, Russia, Iran,
many countries across Asia, and are performing in the U.S. for the
first time with Shoshinz: We Love You Too!

highlight of the comedy circuit. Worlds of adventure, emotion, and
affection are conveyed in
Ineffable, in which a pair of
hapless pallbearers get caught up in an exploration of the mysteries
