SAN JOSE — “When Dreams Are Interrupted-San Jose” will be performed on Sunday, May 25, at 3 p.m. at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), 560 S. First St., San Jose, as the closing event for the joint exhibition of Wendy Maruyama’s “The Tag Project.”

“When Dreams Are Interrupted,” is a riveting site-specific performance that uncovers the profound imprint left on a neighborhood by the forced removal and mass evacuation of Japanese American communities in 1942. Purple Moon Dance Project’s Jill Togawa, Arisika Razak, Ruth Ichinaga, and Sharon Sato explore and infuse with “The Tag Project” to draw out the stories and memories amassed by Maruyama and to highlight local history and stories, both known and newly uncovered.

Presented by Contemporary Asian Theater Scene, Japanese American Museum of San Jose, Purple Moon Dance Project and San Jose ICA.

A special remembrance will be held in honor of Memorial Day. Seating is limited.

The closing event is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. To RSVP, call (408) 283-8155. For more information, contact Jill Shiraki at [email protected] or visit www.sjica.org.
