Dance is a tool that allows me to better understand myself and the world that I exist in. I am inspired by human conditions and experiences: the way we live, the way we move, the way we feel, and the way we interact as human beings. I am fascinated by the passing of energy within the body and from one body to the next.
A journey of uncovering where I came from, questioning who I am, and reflecting on the diaspora of my ancestors.
The Next Generation of LC Leaders: Jennifer Aoki
My heritage-based dance practice is my way of being part of the conversation around the impact of Japanese Canadian internment and dispossession. As an emerging Nikkei voice in the Japanese Canadian Community, I want my art to contribute to a collective healing process.
