Purple Moon Dance Project to perform at the Arkansas Art Center

In a special collaboration, emerging within the gallery installation, Purple Moon Dance Project and Artistic Director Jill Togawa will present When Dreams Are
Interrupted, a riveting site-specific performance that uncovers the profound imprint left on a neighborhood by the forced removal and mass evacuation of
Japanese American communities in 1942. Dancers Jill Togawa, Ruth Ichinaga and Sharon Sato will explore and infuse with the Tag Project to draw out the
stories and memories amassed by artist Wendy Maruyama and to highlight local history and stories.

  1. i have long been interested in the interment of japanese during world war ll. i have been teaching for the dept. of defense for 29 years in tokyo. thirty years ago, i had the privilage of meetin jane yamashita while finishing my teaching credential. she gradually introduced me to the japanese american culure and the internment.
    she shared poetry and letters with me that were created during and from that experience. i am interested in creating a unit on the japanese internment that would incorporate something like the tag project. if there is anyone that would willing to mentor me on the different aspects of the tag project, it would be appreciated.
    regards,
