Illuminance – Centered in what was once part of the historic Japan Town area of Sacramento, this people powered festival seeks to bring people together to reflect on the shared histories of our community, to remember those who came before, and to celebrate the diversity and richness of culture that surrounds us today. A series of summer workshops culminates in an illuminated procession and finale performance featuring Sacramento Taiko Dan, Flam Chen Circus & Pyrotechnic Theatre, Sawako Ama, Michiyo Koga, and other local and regional artists enacting the story of Amaterasu.
