Mike Lala and Iris McCloughan are poets and performance makers in New York City. Iris is the winner of the 2018 Stanley Kunitz Memorial Prize and author of the chapbooks No Harbor and Triptych. Mike is the author of Exit Theater, winner of the 2016 Colorado Prize, and the chapbooks Twenty-Four Exits and In the Gun Cabinet.

Kuramoto

November 17-18

Written & performed by Non Kuramoto

You’re invited to a virtual tour of a Japanese sentou with Non Kuramoto. She muses on being a first-generation immigrant and the changing ideals of familial love, as international borders become increasingly volatile.

Non Kuramoto is an iconic feminist-art-queer. She is a slut for all art-forms, dipping toes and mixing-and-matching in any way that she sees fit; Stand up, playwriting, music, sketch comedy, visual art, whatever works. nonkuramoto.com IG: @nyanchatte

Kiyo Kamisawa (Dramaturg) is a theatre maker passionate about bridging different cultures through poetic language and expressive movement. Originally from Tokyo, she has recently worked at Bushwick Starr and Prototype Festival.
