Below U.S. is a multi-media play about hybrid identity directed by Tikka Sears and Manuel Castro. I made some animated segments for it and it was a great experience. It ran at the Ethnic Cultural Theater June 2-4, 2011. The edited video of the play will premiere this Thursday during the Pioneer Square Art Walk at Tikka and Manuel’s studio inside the Tashiro Kaplan building. Here is a little more practical information from Tikka:
