TALES OF CLAMOR is a hybrid theatre, aerial arts, movement and media performance project that bends time through past and present, exploring cultural and institutionalized silence on the path to collective clamor, justice & healing. TOC digs into the politics of silencing, including the Model Minority “Strategy”, and a little-known moment of American history: hearings for the 1981 Commission on Wartime Relocation & Internment of Civilians that led to the win of Redress & Reparations for an entire community of people incarcerated during WWII. TOC includes extensive community engagement - prioritizing community in the artistic process and spaces to facilitate creative response to the material.
