In Asian America, immigrations physical and social dislocations often rub up against cultural invisibility and conservative social mores. Confronting issues of queerness, cultural displacement and immigrant identity, Self/Split brings together four renowned Asian diasporic artists for an evening of live performances and discussion. Nicolas Wong is a queer, Chinese, Hong Kongbased poet who uses poetry to examine his multiple communities; political theatre artist and writer DLo combines hip hop and humor to capture his reality as a transgender Tamil American artist; Sam Chanse, a multiracial playwright and performer, inhabits different characters in her solo performances as a way of exploring the multiplicity of identity; and Chiwan Choi, called the Jay-Z of poetry (LA Weekly) spins new mythologies while exploring personal history and loss. Following their performances, the artists will discuss the intersections of creative process and identity with USC professor Meiling Cheng.
