Kimi Maeda's solo performance tells the true story of two men held in a Japanese American internment camp during WWII: Maeda's father, an Asian art historian currently suffering from dementia, and the subject of his research, Isamu Noguchi, a half-Japanese-half-American sculptor. Weaving together live feed projections of sand drawings with archival footage from the 1940s, Maeda's performance poses important questions about how the Japanese American internment camps will be remembered.

Kimi Maeda is a theatre artist based in Columbia, SC whose intimate visual performances cross disciplines and push boundaries. Her ephemera trilogy is a collection of sand drawing and shadow performances that deal with memory, home, and trans-cultural identity.
