No-No Boy is a multimedia concert performed by Brown University graduate students Julian Saporiti and Erin Aoyama. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese Incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of Asian American experience, Julian Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs in an effort to bring these stories to a broader audience. Also featuring Erin Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at one of the 10 Japanese American concentration camps, No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden in the American consciousness.
