SEA Echoes Through Rivers

Kaysone, Sunny and Sophea live in and/or have roots in Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center and North Minnepolis, where some of Minnesota's largest populations of South East Asians (SEA) live. The team will focus on engaging community members to explore the feeling of being stuck between two worlds - neither here nor there - and highlight the narratives of the diaspora voice and whether a sense of belonging can be found in their neighborhoods.

The artist team will engage communities in telling their stories through outreach of interviews, conversations, and gatherings. The project will conclude with a street theatre performance with the artist team and community members in neighborhoods in Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center and North Minneapolis, addressing issues inherent in a bicultural identity, xenophobia in America, and issues endemic to Southeast Asian American immigrant communities.
