Various States & Venues

Throughout the month of June, the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre is producing NO-NO BOY, a play adapted from John Okada's 1957 novel of the same name. Written by Ken Narasaki in 2010, the play explores the fate of Japanese and Japanese American during the post-Pearl Harbor internment. It gives special attention to the "No No Boys," Japanese Americans who answered "no" to questions 27 and 28 on the Leave Clearance Application Form "loyalty questionnaire."

The play will be performed in three locations: 

- June 18 & 19 at The Burke Theatre in Washington, DC
- June 21 - 25 at Theatre Row's Studio Theatre in New York, NY
- June 16 at Flushing Town Hall in Flushing, NY

For more information and to buy tickets, please visit the National Tour page.

FandangObon is a collaborative effort between California-born Japanese and Mexican American artists. These performances, taking place between June 29th and July 4th, will explore the connections between the music and dance traditions of fandango son jarocho of Veracruz, Mexico and the Japanese Buddhist ritual of obon.

The project's Japanese American artists will also teach workshops on Japanese American festival traditions, such as dancing and drumming. Learn about how Japanese Americans commemorate their ancestors and deceased loved ones through the ritual of obon

Multiple sessions will be presented each day, from 11am to 5pm. 

For more information about this project and other projects, please visit the Smithsonian Folklife Festival page.
