Miwa Yanagi Zero Hour: Tokyo Rose’s Last Tape

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:30pm

(2/27) Stranded in Japan during WWII, a young Japanese-American woman was forced to serve as a radio broadcaster for a propaganda program controlled by the Japanese Imperial Army, and was subsequently tried for treason. Seventy years later, this historic incident is brought to life through a visually stunning whodunit, conceived, written and directed by internationally renowned visual artist Miwa Yanagi. Brimming with iconic imagery from her rich body of photographic work, Zero Hour tells the multi-layered story of a woman caught between two nations during the war. This presentation marks Yanagi's North American debut as a theater artist.

Performed in English and Japanese with English subtitles.
