Selected time

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

Performance artist Dan Kwong teams up with taiko artist Kenny Endo for this moving and hilarious tribute to Kwong's rebellious late mother, Momo Nagano. Kwong traces Nagano's journey from her all-American girlhood in Los Angeles to WWII incarceration camp, her life as a single mother raising four kids, and her transformation from housewife to Venice Beach artist. By including video interviews with other Japanese American single moms from the 1960s through today, Kwong weaves together the multiplicities of their experiences while revealing commonalities from their shared cultural background.
