About This Event
Led by Japanese-born, New York-based composer and producer Migiwa Miyajima, “Unbreakable Hope and Resilience” is a collaborative performing art of the nine-movement musical suite played by her 17-piece big band, Miggy Augmented Orchestra. It includes the projection mapping of images and text related to the healing process after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.
As a survivor herself, Miyajima interviewed survivors of the tragedy and volunteers for the recovery efforts as part of her own healing process. Over time she collected empowering, real-life stories. The compositions and Japanese illustrator Nao Sakamoto’s images used for the projection are based on the beautiful quotes Miyajima collected during the interviews.
Culture Lab LIC will broadcast this performance live worldwide.
A Q&A session will follow the concert.
