Triple Something-Triple Looping

I don't think she should portray a geisha, but rather just do a lovely piece to the music. Zhenya is not Japanese and I think specifically dressing like and portraying a geisha could be offensive.
That said, the music is one of my favorite scores and I'm thrilled she'll skate to it! I think it can be done respectfully and sensitively while still making use of the lovely music.
I am sure they will be sensitive to that. Have to see who the choreographer is.
Evgenia has always said Japan is one of her favorite places in the world, I imagine this will be her tribute to a country that has shown her so much love back.
In other news, I hope she sticks to Tosca, maybe tweak it here and there. But we already know it can score high - with more time, I think it will even be better. Let's also remember that Evgenia's still in the middle of changing her technique - she's just 10 months in - so keeping Tosca will give her enough space to continue working on her technique.
