LOCAL MULTICULTURAL COLLECTIVE PRESENTS ORIGINAL NEW WORK BASED ON A TRUE STORY
- "We keep on making mistakes in the moment, but in time you come to terms with it." - Ode.
Ode. Movements presents NeOn, written and directed by Mayumi Yoshida.
We all have our own definition of love. Between Vancouver and Tokyo, young and old, rich and poor, oh and of course men and women. Is anything fundamentally different? If so what and why? Is anything the same?
“I know someone who has never been the main character of their life. She believed in other people's happiness but not her own.” – NeOn
By introducing multiple stories of love, this show questions how we commit to the practice of love and our approach to human relationships and most of all, our lives.
The show features a diverse cast including Lee Shorten and Mayumi Yoshida, both currently working on popular Amazon Studios series The Man in the High Castle.
Ode. Movements is a non-profit multicultural collective of artists employing a community based resource model to create multimedia Art seated in loving intention. We wish to inspire humankind to have a desire to extend its vision and seek the opportunity to exchange ideas and inspire moments of optimism. In these changing times, NeOn reminds us to take a look at how we relate to people and events in our lives, and how there are so many different ways to do so.
