Interesting article on an exhibit on lives of Japanese women in the UK since 1945.
According to Kyodo News, describing the New Earth Theatre’s project ‘Tsunagu/Connect’ :
‘A team of volunteers interviewed participants about why they came to Britain, their first impressions and the practical issues of living in a foreign country.
‘The stories document the interviewees’ changing relationships with both Britain and Japan and unveil the shifting views of Japan in Britain over many decades.
‘They show how some Japanese women have paid an emotional price to find freedom in a kind of “third” space where they are neither entirely British nor Japanese.’
You can see a trailer for the project here.
