WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Denise Uyehara's Big Head revisits the treatment of Japanese Americans during World War II and considers current-day treatment of those perceived as "the enemy now" -- including Muslim Americans, Arab Americans, and South Asian Americans. Clay animation, video montage, text and movement evoke the winding path of collective memory and provide hope for the future. Presented as part of the National Asian American Theater Festival, Big Head shares a double-bill with Replaced Rituals.
