PAPA and AAI bring together an amazing ensemble of performers to present the Living Museum of Philly’s Asian Histories. Using real stories collected from API community members, the cast transforms word into movement and sound in this dynamic and interactive 2 part performance series:

PART 1: The Living Museum
A team of eight performers will create shorts pieces each highlighting a different moment in Philly Asian History.
We will transform Asian Arts Initiative into a living museum with performance installations ranging from music, visual arts and poetry to movement, dance and more.

August 9th 7-10pm
August 10th 2-5pm, 7-10pm

PART 2: The Community Showcase
PAPA performers will work together in the week following August 10th to create a combined piece that blends the stories you saw in the Living Museum into one. This will be performed in a showcase featuring 4 neighborhood arts groups, and will end in a community meal.
