Choreographer Gabrielle Kazuko Nomura Gainor, along with dancers Sarah Baker, Hailey Bortel, Siena Dumas, Truong Nguyen, Fumi Murakami, Sarah Sakurazawa, and Ayako Shapiro perform “From Issei to Rokusei.”
This performance comes from the deepest love for those who came before, and those who will come after. Simultaneous with all the pain, trauma, and complexity of what our families and communities have endured, our legacy is one of joy, beauty, and aliveness. Our legacy is helping to create a future where all can thrive.
Music by Kishi Bashi, “For Every Voice that Never Sang” and Paul Kikuchi, “Seki No Oiwake.” The audio includes a clip from a Densho oral history narrator, Nobuko Miyake-Stoner: ddr.densho.org/interviews/ddr-densho-1000-242-1/
