Not Quite: Asian American by Law, Asian Woman by Desire
This solo performance is designed with political urgency and aims for political impact. This show is a direct response to the current political climate and the Trump Presidency. In this solo, Ada Cheng uses “not quite” to explore and connect several major themes: the meanings of home(land), the institutionalization of the alien status, the fractured nature of Asian American identity, and the intersectionality of multiple identities. Ada Cheng intends this show to be an artistic intervention and an intellectual challenge to current politics and debates. The performance itself is 45 minutes, followed by discussion.
