Shout Out to Japan
"Remember, Repair, Prepare"
The Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Commemoration Event
Saturday, March 12th @ Teatro ZinZanni
222 Mercer St Seattle, WA 98109
Doors open at 10:00am, event begins at 10:30am
Join us as we mark the 5th year anniversary since the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We will screen the musical "100 Ways to Say Thank You" made by tsunami survivors, and hear from students at Tohoku University about new disaster technology in Japan.
We want to honor the resilience and bravery of those in Japan, and also help Seattle imagine what it would really be like to experience an earthquake and tsunami disaster on a large scale. We know we should prepare, but it’s hard to imagine it really happening. What would it be like? How could we respond? We also want to send words of comfort, admiration and thanks to those in Japan whose bravery inspires us.
This event is free to the public and will include speeches from Japanese dignitaries, emergency preparedness experts, along with a sing-a-long of a song from the musical with Mr Teramoto and Hans Teuber, director of the Teatro ZinZanni band. It will close with a number from the Winds of Hope chorus, sung every year since the disaster. We encourage you to join us to Remember, Repair and Prepare.
