there is no doubt that Ishii's Japanese
aesthetic is founded upon the concept of
wa. The deeply ingrained Japanese sense
of harmony is built upon the sum of millions of people with a shared value and

And Harmony, 2018). Ishii's designs are
created with millions of shared ideas in
one brush stroke.
Yoshinori Tanokura, originally
from Tokyo, is currently

productions. His design credits include Moon
Over Buffalo (People's Light & Theatre),
Clever Little Secret by Joe DiPietro (Westside

Theatre Company), and Peter and the
Starcatcher (Adrienne Arsht Center) for which
he received the Carbonell Award for the Best
