Event description

Description

The Colgate University Department of Theater is proud to present:

Club Diamond
Created by Saori Tsukada & Nikki Appino with Tim Fain
Featuring Saori Tsukada (Performer) and Tim Fain (Violinist)

1937 Tokyo—An American silent film about a Japanese immigrant is live-narrated by a celebrated Benshi whose existence is being threatened by the impending arrival of the talkies. Ten years later, he will survive under US occupation as a street performer, desperately attempting to finish this story. Admiration and resistance, dreams and survival, Club Diamond is a modern take on the immigration tale.

About Club Diamond
Club Diamond was developed, in part, at the 2016 Sundance Institute Theatre-Makers Residency and the 2017 Sundance Institute Theatre Lab at MASS MoCA. It premiered at the Public Theater as part of the 2017 Under the Radar Festival.
