American Dreams/Asian Nightmares

A musical performance that chronicles the history of the Chinese Massacre of 1871 through movement, music, and spoken narrative.

A sonic exploration of the Asian American experience, and its many beautiful contradictions.

 This performance is a follow-up to the 2021 theatrical podcast Blood on Gold Mountain, which gained national recognition for its portrayal of the 1871 LA Chinatown Massacre. 

 American Dreams/Asian Nightmares engages with Anti-Asian violence and rhetoric from the inside out. The three-part program combines Asian and American music traditions, Data Sonification and Anti-Colonial performance art to break down barriers of Race and Nationality, and spark new dialogues about what it means and how it feels to be Asian-American.

National Endowment of the Arts Award performance
