The Tank, a non-profit arts presenter in Manhattan, will host the ephemera trilogy by Columbia, South Carolina-based theatre artist Kimi Maeda about her father’s experiences in a Japanese American internment camp.

Paper and sand, light and shadow, memory and identity, the familiar and the strange; woven together these are the elements that compose Kimi Maeda’s ephemera trilogy. Developed over a period of six years, ephemera’s three short solo performances use a range of innovative storytelling techniques and stunning visuals to explore the artist’s bi-cultural identity and family history, from a Japanese American internment camp during World War II, to postwar Japan, to suburban New England.

With music by Bill Carson and Kishi Bashi.
