A recording of our performance at the International Center of Photography in New York City. March 2018.  Linked here.

"Presented in collaboration with the Poetry Society of America and the Poetry Coalition's 'Poetry and the Body' theme, this two-part event brings together artists, scholars, poets, and photographers who draw on the history of Japanese incarceration during World War II and its archival, material evidence in their innovative practices. During Part II, Julian Saporiti and Erin Aoyama present the immersive musical experience No-No Boy, followed by a discussion with poet Brandon Shimoda, photographer Paul Kitagaki, and scholar Bob Lee."
