KUNG FU ZOMBIES VS. CANNIBALS


by SAYMOUKDA DUANGPHOUXAY VONGSAY
directed by RANDY REYES


SYNOPSIS

In a world where modern civilization has collapsed beyond recognition and the earth has been littered by zombies and cannibals, two women from opposite ends of the world kill their way to salvation. Framed under the Five Buddhist tenets, their journey is told through an amalgamation of severed heads, forced kisses, human steaks, and a chorus of gang bangin' monks. Live video manipulation and fight scenes may cause epileptic seizures.

HER BACK(BONE)

by KAYVA YANG
directed by MEENA NATARAJAN

SYNOPSIS

Her Back(Bone) is a new performance that explores the flesh of memories, the disquiet with which we bury and unearth them, and the questions surrounding forced migration and displacement. Inspired by two stories woven together: the journeys of grandmothers during post Cultural Revolution and the protests against loss of home and land caused by the Three Gorges Dam Project, Her Back(Bone) explores through movement and text how women and their communities often dig up bones and lay down our stories to rest.
