In conjunction with the new musical “Allegiance,” which ran at The Old Globe last Fall, a portion of The Tag Project was on view in the theater’s lobby. A related exhibition of objects from the internment camps, organized by the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego, will be on view at the Museum of Man Annex, next to the Globe.
Tule Lake, Heart Mountain and Poston were chosen for this particular installation: the incarceration camps, Tule Lake and Heart Mountain are at the center and settings of the musical itself. Most of the Japanese Americans who lived in San Diego were sent to Poston – and its presence in the exhibition honors the fact that “Allegiance” opened in our fair city.
The Tag Project was viewed 45 minutes before each performance of “Allegiance,” from September 25th through October 21 at The Old Globe in Balboa Park.
