Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai’s Say You Heard My Echo is a spoken word theater project that juxtaposes fictional narratives of three Asian American women in NYC a decade after 9/11. Their struggles with survivorship and faith prompt them to call on Mary Magdalene, Guan Yin, and Aisha for solace and answers as they come of age in a world impacted by war. Rendered with humor and humanity, Say You Heard My Echo questions what remains sacred in times of war while unearthing intersections between feminism, Asian Pacific Islander American identity, and religious freedom. Following the performance, the audience may dialogue with the work and artists. More info here.
