Master Class with Nobuko Miyamoto

With the National Institute for Directing and Ensemble Creation

Saturday 20 March 2021

Pangea World Theater and Art2Action presented a conversation about directing with Nobuko Miyamoto livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Saturday 20 March 2021 at 12 p.m. PST (San Francisco, UTC -8) / 2 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 3 p.m. EST (New York, UTC -5).

In this moment of distancing and racial reckoning, what can we as artists do to deepen connection and empathy between people of diverse cultures? Using breath, body, song and story, Nobuko will lead us through a simple communal process to energetically open a way to reveal our connectedness.

This event will be livestreamed on HowlRound, and followed by an interview with Nobuko about her life in artistic practice and activism. Join us!

Nobuko Miyamoto is an artivist who uses song, theater and dance to explore ways to decolonize and reclaim our minds, bodies, histories and communities, seeing the arts as a means of social change and solidarity across cultural borders. Her new album 120,000 Stories has just been release by Smithsonian Folkways, and her memoir, Not Yo’ Butterfly: My Long Song of Relocation, Race, Love and Revolution will be published in June by University of California Press.
