Artist-in-Residence at Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation

March 21st - June 22nd, 2022

Performance on June 22, 2022, Brooklyn, NY

The performance is about asking questions, dealing with reality, making room for remembering, and questioning the privileged. From specific stories and struggles nine Chinese immigrant women shared to the poetic questions asked by different women about power, life, memory, dilemma, and even a certain afternoon, I desire to crave an emotional and reflective space between audiences and the performance.
