SAY YOU HEARD MY ECHO is an evening-length spoken word poetry theater project that will be presented in full production with audience dialogues at Asian American Arts Alliance’s Locating the Sacred Festival (September 2012) in NYC. The project explores the impacts of 9/11 on three fictional Asian American women in NYC a decade after the fall of the Twin Towers. Their struggles with survivorship and faith prompt them to call on three female religious icons: Mary Magdalene, Guan Yin, and Aisha.
SAY YOU HEARD MY ECHO was presented in a staged reading co-produced by Asian American Arts Alliance and Flushing Council on the Arts at Flushing Town Hall (October 2011). Major funding for the development of the script was provided by Asian Women’s Giving Circle with additional support by New York University’s A / P / A Institute. The project was also be presented in a staged reading at the Poetic License Theater Festival (January 2012). Both productions directed by Jesse Y. Jou. Say You Heard My Echo was also featured in a developmental workshop via Rising Circle Theater Company’s Playrise Festival (June 2012).
SAY YOU HEARD MY ECHO is presented by Moving Earth Productions in association with Rising Circle Theater Collective.
