Comfort Women: A New Musical

The Los Angeles Theatre Center
514 S. Spring St. Los Angeles

Dimo Kim Musical Theatre Factory presents Comfort Women : A New Musical, which tells a widely unknown history about thousands of young women forced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during WWII. The issue was largely suppressed up until 1987, yet from then till now, survivors and activists continue to fight for global recognition. As the sensitive conversations around comfort women continue to cause conflict and polarize communities, at times it is easier to let them fall through the cracks, leading into taboo and secrecy. However, we believe this act of silencing is unjust to the memories of violence that these victims and their families must carry throughout their lives; instead, we make it our responsibility to respect them appropriately. For this reason, Comfort Women is a production that tells these women’s stories on their behalf. The featured characters are not merely victims; while they face unspeakable horrors, the vast emotional strength they carry moves them to protect themselves and other women. By allowing their performances to convey the true fear and trauma experienced by comfort women, the cast members work to amplify their voices to the audience in attendance.
