Pan Asian Repertory Theatre celebrates Asian Heritage month with a PAN ASIAN FESTIVAL OF NEW WORKS, the premiere of four original work theatre pieces written by and performed by emerging Asian-Americans.
Line up is as follows:
a Butoh-Inspired Movement
by Kendra Ware
The last day of a homeless woman.
by Lan Tran
Five strangers stuck in an elevator on 9/11: a surfer, an immigrant, a professional hugger, a model and a pickpocket. What is the one thing they have in common? Post traumatic sex disorder, the new PTSD. In this dark comedy, the trapped elevator is a metaphor for all the trauma in their lives.
(American Born Chinese)
by John Quincy Lee
ABC was written, to ask: why isn't there one single American Asian leading man in American film or television? Why can't we name one single Asian American anchorman when we watch the news? Where are our Asian American role models?
by Terry Park
A multimedia, autobiographical solo performance of divisions and reunifications. Weaving together storytelling, character monologues, spoken word, hip hop and photographs, Park takes his audience on a fast and furious journey from his mother's house in Pyongyang to a Salt Lake City "nut house" to the World Cup in Seoul and all points in between, mixing and spinning multiple memories, voices, spaces, and histories to explore themes of migration, trauma, war, language, race, and rebellion.
The works will be presented in repertory.
