the ephemera trilogy

About The Show

Paper and sand, light and shadow, memory and identity, the familiar and the strange; woven together these are the elements that compose Kimi Maeda’s ephemera trilogy. Developed over a period of six years, ephemera’s three short solo performances use a range of innovative storytelling techniques and stunning visuals to explore the artist's bi-cultural identity and family history, from a Japanese American internment camp during World War II, to postwar Japan, to suburban New England.
