A Multi-Media Performance
When the Constitution was disregarded. "I" and "You" became "Them."
Thank you for all the support you have given me in the past. I couldn’t have done it without you. Now I am asking for the biggest contribution ever to realize this piece.
Performance of stories of Japanese Americans interned in camps in the US during WW II when the Constitution was disregarded. "I" and "You" became "Them."

My name is Janet Aisawa. I created, directed and perform in "Them", a multimedia piece that has been a life time in the making, and comes from interviews that I started doing in 2005 of my aunts, uncles, and their friends..
Legend says that if you make 1000 cranes your wish will come true. 1000 origami cranes will be made with each individual’s wish for peace written on the back of the origami paper and folded into the crane. These cranes will be strung together to make a chain of 1000 and will be placed on Sadako’s Children’s Memorial in Hiroshima, Japan. Sadako was two years old when the A-bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and she died of radiation poisoning when she was twelve.
