In love with Japan
Fiona Graham will lead the four-member team at the performance. Fiona made headlines around the world when she became the first westerner geisha. “I was only 15 when I first visited Japan. I was an exchange student and the plan was to experience life with a Japanese family and go to school there for a year. I knew nothing about Japan before going and I couldn’t speak the language, but as soon as I moved in with my Japanese family in Tokyo, I loved it,” she said.
