Veteran performance artist Dan Kwong finds inspiration close to home for his latest show, What? No Ping-Pong Balls?
Collaborating with noted taiko drummer Kenny Endo, Kwong uses music -- in addition to archival footage and his trademark comical props -- to tell the story of his mother, Momo Nagano (1925-2010). The multimedia performance centers on how Nagano, an eccentric Japanese-American artist and single mother, prevailed over sexism and racism throughout her very long and distinguished life. Borrowing the title of her autobiography, Kwong maps his mother's journey from her all-American girlhood and war-time internment, then on to her defiant marriage, taboo-shattering divorce and final transition into a Venice Beach hippie. Attend this tale of a mother, artist and pioneer at Highways Performance Space, Los Angeles's hub of experimental theater, dance, solo drama and multimedia performance.
