Puppet Slam at Dixon Place with Drama of Works
PUNCH KAMIKAZE: WWII
The Vietnamese Famine of 1945
"Valerie Pham and Leah Ogawa recreate unspoken stories about the Vietnamese Famine of 1945 during the Japanese Occupation of French Indochina. Through a mix of puppetry, shadow play, projection, and poetry, we investigate a time in history when the promise of death deforms life, when hunger strips away dignity, and desperation corrupts humanity."
Collaboration with Valerie Pham, Zip Nguyen, and Huong Lan.
