Distant Voices is a docudrama with piano underscoring based on the diary of Hiroaki Nishimura written during his experiences as an internee in the Japanese American Concentration Camps of World War II. The presentation details Hiroaki’s journey from the day he was interned on April 27, 1942 until his repatriation as an American citizen in September 1960. The piece is underscored throughout with selections from traditional Japanese folk songs as well as 19th and 20th century composers such as Gershwin, Copland, Dvorak and Debussy.

A vital element to DVTT’s mission is to educate through performance and discussion with audience. This performance will conclude with interactive discussion around the historical and political background, as well as, reflection upon current issues such as racial profiling, exclusion and civil liberties.
