Kazuko Hohki

Kazuko is originally from Japan, and moved to London from Tokyo in 1978.  She founded London based Japanese cult-alternative pop performance group Frank Chickens, who had an UK independent chart hit with We Are Ninja, released 5 albums and toured worldwide. In 2010, Frank Chickens were awarded the Edinburgh Comedy God Award. Following more than two decades of success in music, film and TV, Kazuko has been making theatre since the late 1990s.

Fusing idiosyncratic storytelling with multimedia, film, animation, interventions and original music, Kazuko has created numerous award winning performance works, such as The Evidence For The Existence Of Borrowers, Toothless and Great Escape - Borrower’s Tale, commissioned by UK venues, including Battersea Arts Centre, MAC, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Bluecoat Arts Centre, Chelsea Theatre, Jacksons Lane and Farnham Maltings. These works have been performed to critical acclaim here and abroad. Lately she is focusing on participatory projects, devising performances via community and school workshops.
