Suzi Takahashi & Kristin Marting (HERE Arts) – “THE STORY BOX”
Takahashi and Marting are developing The Story Box, which uses a traditional form of Japanese storytelling called, kamishibai, to compare the lives a Japanese American today to girl living in a 1943 internment camp. They will share an excerpted reading of the work, which ends with a group storytelling event then guide the audience through the group storytelling event. Participating audience members will select an image from which they will be invited to share a story about their own American experience with a small group of other audience members. They will follow the exploration with a talkback to ascertain audience reactions. In the way, the audience will have an opportunity to play an important role in developing the work.
