As part of our free and ongoing Field Guide program, join PICA and Guest Facilitator Candace Kita for a small-group experience exploring the social, political, cultural, and aesthetic influences in Takahiro Yamamoto’s Direct Path to Detour, in which the artist, as a queer Japanese immigrant to the US, examines the physical and emotional effects of clashing cultural values in a globalized society. Through pre- and post-show conversation and participation, we’ll discover key themes and ideas in the work while sharing our own thoughts and perspectives on the performance. All are welcome—no prior contemporary dance or performance experience required! Light refreshments will be served.

  • Pre-Show Workshop: 6:00 PM
  • Performance: 8:00 PM
  • Post-Show Discussion: 9:00 PM

Location will be announced shortly.

Field Guide is free of charge with a ticket to the performance. Limited to 25 participants. Register via email to Roya Amirsoleymani, Community Engagement Director, at [email protected]
