Team Sunshine Performance Corporation presents JapanAmerica Wonderwave, a Comedic Dance-Theatre Elegy with a Special Opening Performance from Kate Watson-Wallace/Anonymous Bodies and Musician Christopher Sean Powell!

JapanAmerica Wonderwave is what the company considers a Comedic Dance-Theater Elegy, or a Disaster Response Mixtape. Employing a playlist of American and Asian pop music and a blend of dance and image theater techniques, the piece is a funny and touching response to the Japanese Tsunami of March 11, 2011, and other tragedies far and near.

"danced with earnestness and poignancy."
-AJ Sabatini, Broad Street Review

" [a] clever use of the mundane everyday...the contrast between Hirano's langour and Camp's unconcerned urgency was fascinating."
-Amelia Longo,
