Your contribution supports Resident Artists Liz Hara, Maiko Kikuchi & Spencer Lott and their project, 9,000 Paper Balloons. Independent artists Liz Hara, Maiko Kikuchi and Spencer Lott have teamed up to create 9,000 Paper Balloons, a collage of original ghost stories that weave together the tragic end of a young American family, the internment of a Japanese couple, and the cover-up of 9000 paper balloons with live bombs that floated across the Pacific toward the United States in 1945. This new work of puppet-theatre is inspired by true events and explores cultural hysteria, government censorship, and the long term effects of the Japanese Internment. Visually inspired by Japanese Woodblock prints and stark black and white images from the Japanese Internment camps, this play will float throughout the theater like a fog. The ghost stories will utilize a radio-noir soundscape as well as spoken Japanese text and rely on shadow puppetry, projections, masks and a whole lot of paper.
