Club Diamond

January 5—9, 2017

with Nikki Appino & Saori Tsukada. Presented by Under the Radar Festival.

The Public Theater
425 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003

937 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. Nikki Appino is an award-winning theatre and filmmaker. Saori Tsukada has been described as a “charismatic mover” (Backstage) and a “startlingly precise dancer” (New York Times). Club Diamond was developed in collaboration with violinist Tim Fain.
