[Ms. Hirokawa’s] commitment to excellence, devotion to young people and humble and deep trust of her gifts is inspiring. . . I consider Ms. Hirokawa to be a master teacher, storyteller and choreographer whose work should be supported in the rehearsal studio, in the public schools, and on the stage.

What I love most about the New York International Fringe Festival is how it uncovers those hidden artistic jewels in our city that deserve our recognition and support. The Covenant Ballet Theatre of Brooklyn is one such jewel. Their production of NISEI is storytelling at its best.
