A PLAY READING OF JAIME SUNWOO’S SPECIALLY PROCESSED AMERICAN ME
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2
8:00 – 9:30PM
Queens Council on the Arts’ Artist Commissioning Program (ACP) and Flushing Town Hall present a play reading and talkback of Jaime Sunwoo’s Specially Processed American Me, a surreal autobiographical performance using SPAM, the canned meat, as a portal into her Asian American upbringing and her family’s experiences of the Korean War. It investigates SPAM’s legacy in the military, its significance in the Asia-Pacific, and its influence on Asian cuisine through music, shadowplay, and cooking. Oscillating wildly between absurd humor and sober tragedy, Specially Processed American Me is a thought-provoking exploration of one of America’s most misunderstood foods.
