Yukie Shiroma and Nyla Fujii-Babb bring to life the picture book art of Gerald McDermott. Choreographer/dancer, Yukie Shiroma, and storyteller, Nyla Fujii-Babb, create a performance of `living picture books` melding modern dance, music, masks, costumes, and storytelling. Featuring Arrow to the Sun, The Stonecutter, Anansi the Spider; A Tale from the Ashanti, and other works by Gerald McDermott, these performances are a unique blend of literature, folklore, cultural studies, and the visual and performing arts in an exciting multi-disciplinary form.
