Downtown Library: 1st Floor Lobby


Kizuna Tree is an interactive installation/performance collaboration between AAPI performance collaborative IS/LAND, Detroit Public Television, and Rising Voices. Comprised of an Ikebana Tree designed by Celeste Shimoura Goedert, sound recordings from the collaborative series AAPI Stories originally co-developed by Zosette Guir of DPTV and journalist Dorothy Hernandez as a response to the Atlanta spa shootings in 2021, and movement, visuals, and readings by IS/LAND, Kizuna Tree is an exploration of communal healing for AAPI peoples, across generations, communities, and ethnicities. The restorative and healing properties through this physical movement and storytelling offers the audience an experiential exploration of the interactive connections between the dancers with each other, the audience, and the tree itself.

This event is in partnership with AAPI performance collaborative IS/LAND, Detroit Public Television, and Rising Voices.
