  1. She just turned 90 the other day. Phenomenal to see how influential she still is! How she is still speaking out, how recognized as a true heroine. Bay Area choreographer, and long-time Asian-American arts advocate Claudine Naganuma has taken great inspiration from Ms. Kochiyama in her latest work “reveal FREEDOM”.

    From months of conversation with this renowned human rights activist, Ms. Naganuma has created a perspective of U.S. history with thought provoking questions regarding current events, packaged within a sophisticated multi-disciplinary dance. dNaga, danceNAGANUMA is a multi-cultural, multi-generational company celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary Season of making politically and culturally important work in Oakland, CA. The work opens June 3rd through June 5th, 2011 at the Laney College Theater in Oakland.
