Dear Friends of EastSide,

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our friend, mentor and Advisory Board member Yuri Kochiyama. With the losses of Amiri Baraka, Chokwe Lumumba, Fred Ho, Mabel Williams, Maya Angelou and now Yuri, we at EastSide are left to reflect on everything these elders have contributed in their lifetimes, and we ask ourselves: what are we doing to continue their work? How will we fill the massive void of leadership, analysis, critique and creativity that defined them? How are we honoring their lifelong commitments to self-determined struggles and truly radical work?

NAKA and EastSide Arts Alliance present the Anastasio Project. The Anastasio Project is a multidisciplinary public performance work that investigates race relations, state brutality, and border violence using the stories of Anastasio Hernandez-Rojas as a point of departure. Hernandez-Rojas was a Mexican national who was detained at the US-Mexico border in May 2010 who was killed by a dozen Customs and Border Patrol agents. The Anastasio Project grows out of NAKA’s longtime interest in investigating social and environmental issues. Navarrete x Kajiyama Dance Theater artists José Navarrete and Debby Kajiyama have partnered with EastSide Arts Alliance since 2006.

Conceived & Directed by Navarrete x Kajiyama Dance Theater (NAKA) with performer-collaborators: Kev Akhidenor, Dajuan Carter-Woodard, Simone Nalls, Patricia Barajas, Jose Navarrete, Michael Turner, Hector Torres

Music by David Molina
Multimedia by Steven Sanchez & Ian Winters
