Say You Heard My Echo: Kelly Tsai, YaliniDream & Adeeba Rana

Folks in NY: don’t miss this new play written by spoken word dynamo Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai and directed by Jesse Jou — co-performed by YaliniDream and Adeeba Rana. It’s happening this Sunday:

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.

Sunday, October 9th · 5  to 7 PM
Flushing Town Hall, 135-37 Northern Boulevard, Queens NYC

Say You Heard My Echo is a co-production of Asian American Arts Alliance and Flushing Council on the Arts & Culture. Co-sponsored by the Asian / Pacific / American Institute at New York University.
