Japan 2011

Situation: In response to the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March of 2011, CWB-USA founder Moshe Cohen traveled there to join Guy Totaro in performing and teaching in shelters, schools, and evacuation centers as well as teaching performance workshops for local professionals in a project with the Tyler Foundation called Niko Niko Taichi (Shine On! Smile Ambassador). Six months after the earthquake, the effects of the disaster were still pronounced: mountains of debris, fields full of destroyed cars, demolished houses, innumerable structures in various stages of deconstruction/reconstruction, and temporary housing everywhere. There was a great amount of discussion and evidence of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in all segments of the population.
