Stitching Pieces of Herstory tells the MiXtory (history, story, mystery) of women who worked as seamstresses in the Teruya district of Okinawa. Teruya was also known as the Black District, a bar district that coexisted with the market district and shopping and business district during the US military occupation period from 1945 to 1972. Teruya’s capital was built by these three economic zones, all prospering together as a community. Building both business and personal relationships with customers and neighbours who were mainly black soldiers as such the fragments of black figures are stitched into the grand narrative of Teruya. Non-linearly told, the MiXtory is like an Okinawan opera, presenting the everyday as life/art performance.
