“Elsewhere” is the fantastic journey of Japanese pioneer Omoto Tannaker, performing at Gibney Dance on May 24, 25, and 26.
Vangeline Theater presents this story of migration and cultural encounters celebrating the life of Tannaker (1842–1916).
In 1860, the Japanese woman joined the Great Dragon Circus on its tour around the world, but in December 1873, Omoto-san’s infant Godie died in Sunderland, England. The tomb of Little Godie was the first Japanese monument erected in England in the 19th century.
“Elsewhere,” May 24, 25, and 26 at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Suitable for teens and adults.
