Asian Arts Initiative presents

A roller coaster of Asian American experience!

Friday & Saturday, May 29 – 30, 2009
7:30 p.m.

From the diverse and intersecting worlds of spoken word, comedy, writing and performance, a cast from East and West coasts collaborate to create a night of “speed plays” inspired by a range of intensely personal stories and global social conditions. All the plays are short – from a few seconds to as many as 5 minutes. So don’t sit back for long, but do enjoy the ride!

Featuring Regie Cabico, John Castro, Makoto Hirano, Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Traci Kato-Kiriyama, Dan Kim, Michelle Myers, Gary San Angel, Anula Shetty, Ryan Suda, F. Omar Telan, Greg Watanabe, Kristina Wong, and other possible surprises.

Warning: the show may include strong language and sensitive content not intended for anyone who is faint of heart! Viewer discretion is advised!


$15 general admission, $12 students
