MADE IN AMERICA is an hour-long solo show about a brave first-generation Japanese artist, Teruko’s shocking, raw autobiography. She chooses to immigrate to the States from Japan by her own will for a reason, encounters many odd and dangerous situations, faces obstacles and learns how to survive in America.
This show is about humanity. It describes beautifully about how the humane American system helped her and did everything for her to survive. This show needs to be seen and heard because it does bring awareness of Women, Asian, First-Generation Immigrants, Mental Health, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Suicide and anyone who suffers and needs help.
Directed by John Flynn
Performed by Teruko Nakajima & Titi (her dog)
