Great Leap at 40: GATHERINGS

Great is turning 40 and to celebrate our 40th anniversary of art and community, we will have 4 GATHERINGS in 2018-19, each reflecting a period of GL’s art in LA’s social/political landscape.

GATHERING I: 1970-1982
 
 
Spend an afternoon sharing how Nobuko Miyamoto’s work on the ‘70s album, A GRAIN OF SAND led to her path as a community artist and founder of Great Leap with Benny Yee.
 
See photos and video of their band Warriors of the Rainbow. Hear music and stories about the first Asian American rock musical CHOP SUEY (‘78-‘81). Meet Rev. Kodani, Benny Yee, Atomic Nancy, Michael Paul Chan, Marilyn Tokuda, Kinnara Taiko and others from the early years.
 
Do a warm-up with reunited members of Nobuko’s dance class, in the same room, on the same beautiful wood floor at Senshin where it all began!
