  3. The Marsh Berkeley presents “Other”


The Marsh Berkeley will present Elaine Magree’s “Other,” a profound and entertaining journey of personal and genealogical discovery, directed by Kenny Yun and developed by Rebecca Fisher and David Ford. Filled with irony, irreverence, and forgiveness, this compelling solo show shines a light on a dark corner of U.S. history through the lens of Magree's absorbing personal family story. Audiences follow Magree on a difficult and unexpectedly funny road trip to the reservation she visited as a child, as she seeks the proper resting place for her mother's ashes. In this humorous and insightful work, “Other” weaves together flashbacks from Magree’s troubled childhood and her larger ancestral past, as she untangles the secrets of her mixed heritage, examining complex questions of identity that are often reduced to simple checkboxes.

September 05, 2019

Through monologue and magic, Japanese American magician David Hirata will excavate the mysteries and stories of magician Namigoro Sumidagawa in The Jap Box, making its debut at The Marsh Berkeley this October. In 1866, Sumidagawa became the first Japanese citizen in over 200 years to receive a passport to leave the country. As part of the a?oeImperil Japanese Troupe,a?? he dazzled audiences across Victorian America with his exotic stage magic and became a media celebrity. By the time Sumidagawa returned home, his prize trick had been appropriated by American magicians in yellowface and rechristened as the a?oeJap Box.a?? Over a century later, Hirata unveils illusions and surprises from this Japanese American story in his latest solo show, The Jap Box. Post-show talkbacks, featuring experts in everything from history to magic, will be offered throughout the run (dates below). The Jap Box will be presented October 26 - December 1, 2019 (press opening: November 2) with performances at 5:00pm Saturdays and 2:00pm Sundays at The Marsh Berkeley, 2120 Allston Way, Berkeley.
