Doubtful Sound / Fragility Takeover

The Women of Ishikawa

Doubtful Sound researches, translates and performs folktales from remote areas of Japan. 'The Women of Ishikawa' showcases the female characters from Honshu’s west coast.

The tales are both hilarious and tragic, and include the Snake-wife who slowly suffocates her new husband, a puzzle solving elderly woman who couldn’t be left in the forest to die, and a young woman who gets murdered by the sun.
