TALES OF CLAMOR is a 7-person play centering around two artists debating cultural versus institutionalized silence. Utilizing ensemble storytelling, circus arts and archival footage from the 1981 Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians hearings— when the Japanese American community broke their silence for the first time in nearly 40 years after WWII mass incarceration of Japanese Americans— this piece explores what it means to show up for each other, speak out, and generate the collective clamor necessary for social change.
