Sadly, my time at the Bronx Zoo and Re-Usable the Musical has come to a close. The summer entertaining NYC residents and educating them on recycling has been a real pleasure. But even though it is time to move on, through the wonders of modern technology the memories can live on forever! Here's a new demo video showing the many forms of puppetry I used during performances of Re-Usable the Musical. Thanks to the Wildlife Conservation Society - Bronx Zoo for use of the footage, and Gables Grove Productions for creating such a wonderful show. "I will 'Remember' to make a difference!"
Cloud 雲 くも Kumo, a short film by Yvonne Ng, follows the lives of a Hiroshima survivor and her granddaughter. I was lucky enough to be a dancer in this stunning work of art.
Through the work of an international cast and crew, the film traces the affects of the atomic bomb on generations. The grandmother is Hibakusha (received atomic bomb), Reiko is telling her grand mother's story through dance, and I play one of her dancers. The film now flies to Hiroshima to continue filming on location.
We filmed all day yesterday here in NYC in scenes showing rehearsals, the dressing room, and of course the final performance of Reiko's tribute. While we wait the long wait for the film to be finished, here's a little photographic sneak peak from rehearsals as well as yesterday's shoot.
