STORIES THAT CONNECT US
A Master Class with Nobuko Miyamoto
Part of the National Institute for Directing & Ensemble Creation Virtual Series
co-presented by Pangea World Theater & Art2Action
In this moment of distancing and racial reckoning, what can we as artists do to deepen connection and empathy between people of diverse cultures? Using breath, body, song and story, Nobuko will lead us through a simple communal process to energetically open a way to reveal our connectedness.
Registration for the Master Class is limited to 30 partisticpants on Zoom. However, this event will be livestreamed on HowlRound, where everyone can participate from home! Following the class, we'll take a short break, followed by an interview with Nobuko about her life in artistic practice and activism, conducted by Dipankar Mukherjee of Pangea World Theater. Join us!
Nobuko Miyamoto is an artivist who uses song, theater and dance to explore ways to decolonize and reclaim our minds, bodies, histories and communities, seeing the arts as a means of social change and solidarity across cultural borders. Her new album 120,000 Stories has just been release by Smithsonian Folkways, and her memoir, Not Yo’ Butterfly: My Long Song of Relocation, Race, Love and Revolution will be published in June by University of California Press.
