University of Central Arkansas in partnership with Hendrix College present Dance/Art/Conversation, a free, public event with CORE Performance Company. This event will draw upon Gaman, CORE’s richly-layered performance of contemporary dance that explores how challenges can be overcome by courage and expresses the conflicting emotions of sorrow and joy, confinement and liberation, that were experienced by the interned Japanese-American citizens during World War II. Two of the camps operated by the War Relocation Authority were in Arkansas (Rohwer and Jerome).
This public event will take place in the Library of the Mills Center at Hendrix College, near the 1943 mural, Arrival at Camp Jerome, by Henry Sugimoto, who painted the work while interned. Hendrix College President Tsutsui will offer remarks and introduction for this event.
*This production is traveling around Arkansas and will be held at different locations on selected dates*
