A Box Without a Bottom:
Soko-nashi Bako

Race, illusion, and magic. 

David Hirata performs an excerpt from his show, A Box Without a Bottom (Soko-nashi Bako) which ran at the Marsh Berkeley in 2019 and 2020.  A blend of Hirata’s personal story and the history of Japanese magician Namigoro Sumidagawa, A Box Without a Bottom explores illusions of race and identity through magic and storytelling.
