Voices of the Diaspora

Responses from the Asian Arts Initiative and BPSOS Performance in Philadelphia

Much gratitude to our hosts Nancy Nguyen and the youth volunteers of AAI and BPSOS.

Sharing our work with Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American audience members, from 3 year olds to 80 year olds, helped contextualize and ground our work within the community from which these stories originated. In sharing family narratives, tears, laughter, and movement, Project Agent Orange found a new way of understanding journey, displacement, cleansing, and hope. And so we begin our path towards locating home.
