A woman battles the curse she has inherited from her ancestors - the Futukuchi Onna. This Japanese monster, also known as a yokai,  manifests as a heckling mouth on the back of her head. The Futakuchi Onna impedes the woman’s pursuit of music, destroys her relationships and leads her to despair. And yet, the Futukuchi Onna also has some lessons to teach. With acceptance, one can find balance, understanding and the courage it takes to be yourself.

Content Warning: 13+, Sexual Content.

Artist Bio: When Kristin auditioned and was cast as Madame Hattori in Shanna Fujji’s short film Madame Hattori’s Izakaya,  she learned of the breathtaking Japanese myth - Futuakuchi Onna.  The film and the folklore inspired some personal reflection and inspiration which led to this solo show.  

Kristin has been studying acting at Arizona Actor’s Academy since 2017 and currently teaches Performing Arts at Knox Gifted Academy K-6 in Chandler, AZ.  She hopes to pursue performance full-time when she retires.  Kristin also enjoys (yes, enjoys) running marathons and making videos of her talented cat, Satori.  This is her first Fringe experience and she is excited to share her story with the Tucson Fringe community.

Tucson Fringe Festival

The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Since 2011, following international fringe tenets, the festival provides artists with low-risk, low-cost opportunities to perform by using economies of scale to reduce venue rental costs and by taking only 20%, and sometimes 0%, of the artist’s earnings. Tucson Fringe also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at low-cost ticket prices.

The festival does not curate or select the performances, maintaining an environment in which everyone and anyone can perform. This ensures that underrepresented artistic voices, such as people of color, the LGBT+ community, women, and other marginalized genders, are championed in our community.

The festival takes place in January every year across multiple venues in downtown Tucson. On average, every year the festival has 20+ shows with between 50-60 performances during the festival weekend.
