Gambatte: An American Legacy

Sunday, June 2, 2019, 2:00 AM

Gambatte: An American Legacy Directed by Chisao Hata Through theatre, dance, music and historical documentation, this 90-minute performance evolved from an original reading performed in 2017 at the Vanport Mosaic Festival. This current collaboration brings together the talents of four artists Chisao Hata, Heath Hyun, Ken Yoshikawa and Jenna Yokoyama. Each has explored what it means to be Asian American in today’s landscape, and the historical impact and complexities on forming identities in America. The Japanese American story is misunderstood.  This performance is a way to spark empathy and heal the traumatic effects of racism in America. Sponsors include: The Regional Arts and Culture Council, The Japanese American Citizens League - Portland Chapter, Ronni Lacroute, Oregon Nikkei Endowment, World Arts Foundation This event is part of THE VANPORT MOSAIC FESTIVAL 2019, May 21-June 5: two weeks of memory activism opportunities to explore the many silenced histories that surround us through screenings, tours, performances, exhibits and dialogues.
