Please join us on Tuesday, September 6th for a very special evening to celebrate the first anniversary of “Chew On This Storytelling” as we honor the stories from our community. We are excited to share that Kristina Wong (“Wong Street Journal”) will be with us!
Kristina Wong was recently featured in the New York Times’ Off Color series“highlighting artists of color who use humor to make smart social statements about the sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious ways that race plays out in America today.” She is a performance artist, comedian and writer who has created five solo shows and one ensemble play that have toured throughout the United States and UK. Her most notable touring show– “Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” looked at the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women and toured to over 40 venues since 2006. It’s now a broadcast quality film distributed by documentary juggernaut, Cinema Libre Studios. (More at www.flyingwong.com).
We’ll have more surprises to share, and hope you’ll be there with us to celebrate!
Tickets available for the September 6th Show at The Marsh in Berkeley.
