"Are we good?"

In this open dialogue, Asian American theater makers ask out loud: what does it means to be good, and what it takes to get good, with ourselves, within theater ecosystems, and the arts at large. Embedded within the question of "goodness" are implications of satisfaction, righteousness, and repair. Are we good as in, "is everything cool between us?" and also, are we doing right by ourselves? What is it going to take to feel justice has been met? What makes us feel good?

After the 2PM performance of The Good Person of Setzuan, Justin Jain, Pauli Reese, Lindsay Smiling, and Anne Ishii (moderator) will talk about the question of making good in the BIPOC theater community, whether through celebration of the victories in our cultural contexts, through unflinching narratives of repatriation and reparations, and the potential for dark comedy in movement building for racial equity.

As part of AAPI Affinity night, the Wilma Theater will feature arts installation by Eva Wu through April 21 in their lobby.

Co-presented by Asian Arts Initiative and The Wilma Theater
