What I liked

I loved her stillness which left me very engaged in her story. Her movements where sparse but graceful.
The sound & visuals were delightful along with her storytelling voice.
It was just the right amount of time but I was sorry when it was over.

What I didn't like

I am not a storyteller or writer myself but I do attend other wonderful storytelling events in Los Angeles. How To Be Japanese is one of my favorite pieces I have seen.

My overall impression

I loved Miyo Yamauchi’s Piece. It was most unusual & honest. She had me laughing & at times feeling very pensive about humanity, history & her personal family story.
