The American School proudly presents Urban Lights – our young company of actors who are creating a performance called “Me. Asian?” that they would like to take to the Perth Fringe World Festival in Australia this March. A fringe festival is a festival of Drama, Dance and performance, and the Perth festival is the third largest fringe festival in the world. Last year almost a million visitors went to watch performances.
The proudest thing we would like to share with you, is that our Urban Lights is the first performing group in any international schools in Vietnam to ever participate in this prestigious event!
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE: “Me. Asian?”
Where are you from?
Not always a simple question to answer.
“Me. Asian?” explores this question from the perspective of a group of young theater makers from Vietnam and Korea, educated in a Western system and permanently attached to the Internet.
Verbatim interviews taken from different generations of family members and the stories of the performers themselves have been interwoven with physical theater, cultural music and dance forms to create a storytelling experience unlike any other.
In their international debut, Urban Lights’ “Me. Asian?” explores how a generation of Asian teenagers navigate the clash between technology, the West and tradition and what it means to truly belong in the 21st Century.
To better facilitate their trip to Australia and experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Urban Lights is needing your precious help!
