No-No Boy creates an immersive experience which shines a light on diverse but interconnected histories: WWII Japanese Incarceration, southeast Asian refugees, and kids in middle-America making sense of hyphenated identities.
Inspired by his doctoral research at Brown University, as well as his experiences growing up as the son of a Vietnamese refugee in Tennessee, singer/songwriter Julian Saporiti’s original songs are performed against a backdrop of projections displaying archival photographs and films. Saporiti is joined on stage by singer Erin Aoyama, a fellow Brown PhD student whose grandmother was incarcerated in a Japanese-American concentration camp.
Ho Etsu Taiko is once again thrilled to perform as guests of No-No Boy at their concert.
