American Bamboo: Stories From the Asian American Experience

American Bamboo offers comic and yet poignant insights into the Asian American experience from historic landmarks like the Chinese railroad workers building the Transcontinental Railway, the internment of the Japanese Americans and the immigration of Southeast Asians after the War in Vietnam to more contemporary commentaries from Asian American young people talking about race, culture and identity in America today. The piece will include stories from such ethnically specific groups as Laotian, South Asian, Vietnamese and Filipino and both traditional Korean mask dance and Bollywood style dances.
