Ferencz works with music and a strongly visual language. . . . to bring Mishima's poetic text to pulsating life with the electrifying feeling that sex is in the air.

Director George Ferencz sees Mishima's significance as deriving from the latter's ability to combine his obsessions with poetry. Ferencz wants audiences to understand his plays even if they do not speak the language spoken by the actors. To accomplish this, he works strongly with actions that render visible the interior states of the figures on stage. Spoken utterances surrender the limelight to physical expression.
