WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Accent is a new dance-theatre collaboration between Japanese-American performance artists Makoto Hirano and Roko Kawai. Makoto and Roko share a "linguistic phenomenon" - while English is the language they are most comfortable speaking, their Japanese holds no traceable accent or hint that they may not be a native to Japan. Through movement, dialogue, and humor, they explore the voice and language(s) of the body, asking "how does my accent look?" Presented as part of the National Asian American Theater Festival, Accent shares a double-bill with Strange Rain.
