  • WHEN

    7 PM–8 PM on May 19, 2023


    Jason Vu

What stops you from listening?

What are you hoping to hear so badly?

What will you ignore to get there?

Through Noise investigates the emerging concept of 'a body' not as a fixed entity, but as an event of sensorial collisions. This mixed-media and dance performance by Jason Vu engages the movements of sounding and listening to consider the choreographies that (re/de)form identity, relationality, and meaning. Jason moves in and through questions around ancestral grief in the Vietnamese diaspora, the conditions of home in an expanding Asian-American consciousness, and their entanglements with queer desire, love, and possibility.

There will be two performance dates:

Friday, May 19 from 7 - 8 p.m.

Saturday, May 20 from 7 - 8 p.m.

Suggested advance tickets are $15-$25 on a sliding scale. Tickets at the door will be $25.
