Bend
Kimi Maeda
Saturday, May 6 at 7PM Tickets: $20
Sunday, May 7 at 3PM Tickets: $15 (Special Matinee Pricing)

Bend tells the true story of two men interned in a Japanese American internment camp during World War II: Maeda’s father, an Asian Art historian who suffered from dementia at the end of his life, and the subject of his research, the renowned artist Isamu Noguchi. Using shadow and projection, theatre artist Kimi Maeda retells the story of her father and Noguchi, both of whom were incarcerated in a camp in Poston, Arizona. Referencing the landscape of the camp’s desert, she uses sand to create live highly detailed drawings inspired by these images. Both compelling and moving, this intimate visual performance examines the effects of losing one’s home, one’s cultural identity and one’s memory, and poses important questions about how the Japanese American internment camps will be remembered.
