A PLAY READING OF JAIME SUNWOO’S SPECIALLY PROCESSED AMERICAN ME @ Flushing Town Hall at Home
Sep 2 @ 8:00 pm
A PLAY READING OF JAIME SUNWOO'S SPECIALLY PROCESSED AMERICAN ME @ Flushing Town Hall at Home | New York | United States

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.

This event is free and open to the public. Registered attendees will receive an email with the watch link. RSVP is required.
