Coffeehouse Chronicles #122: Yara Arts Group

Founded in 1990, Yara Arts Group, a resident company at La MaMa, is a collective of artists of Asian, African, Latino, Eastern and Western European ancestry , who come together to create original work on Eastern themes. Using a collaborative approach, Yara Arts brings together fragments of plays, poems, songs, myths and historical sources to create original work that is reflective of culture they explore.

The 122nd  edition of Coffeehouse Chronicles (curated by Michal Gamily) will focus on Yara Arts Group with live performances and videos from past Yara Arts Group shows.

Moderated by Svitlana Matviyenko, panelists include: Virlana Tkacz , Watoku Ueno and Wanda Phipps. And performances by Meredith Wright, Marina Celander, Shigeko Suga and projections by Volodymyr Klyuzko.  And perhaps a sneak preview of their upcoming production of Dark Nights, Bright Stars.
