The DC Hip-Hop Theater Festival presents Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai’s spoken-word theater play, Say You Heard My Echo, which tracks the stories of three Asian American women in NYC ten years after 9/11 in conversation with Mary Magdalene, Guan Yin, and Aisha. An explosive fusion of spoken word poetry and narrative theater, “Say You Heard My Echo” questions what remains sacred in times of war while exploring these stories of survivorship and faith.
This special presentation of “Say You Heard My Echo” will be performed by Simone Jacobson, Gowri Koneswaran, and Paige Hernandez, DJ’ed by The Pinstriped Rebel (Les Talusan). Proceeds from this event will help fund the Asian Pacific Islander American Spoken Word & Poetry Summit in Washington, DC in 2013 and will help support Bloombars.
