Music, poetry, animation and drama combine for a feast of the senses!  Fox and Jewel is a modern retelling of a Japanese fox myth in support of Japantown.  As San Francisco prepares to redevelop Japantown, fears abound as to what redevelopment will do to the spirit of this vibrant community.  This fun and timely collaboration arose as an expression of community concern.  Featuring taiko artist/dancer/choreographer Melody Takata, poet and writer Ravi Chandra, actor/comedian Todd Nakagawa, shamisen/taiko/jazz artist Tatsu Aoki, composer/jazz artist Francis Wong, Gen Ryu Arts cast, filmmaker Adebukola Bodunrin, and lighting designer Patty Ann Farrell.
