As a second generation Japanese Brazilian, Yumi Izuyama creates forms of expression that draw from the Japanese and Brazilian cultures. At ArtBeat Yumi will tell a beguiling story accompanied by live music played by Joel Springer. Featuring different wild animals from the Amazon such as an anteater, a sloth, and a jaguar, the story uses a traditional Japanese way of telling a story called "Kamishibai," which means paper theater in Japanese. After the performance, children will be making origami jaguars - one of the main characters of the story. This is a program for families with young children.
