Women Poets of Oceania Showcase
Thursday, Apr 23 2020, 7:30 PM
McCoy Studio Theater
In support of current county, state, and federal governmental and health agency recommendations, and in light of the worldwide efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Women Poets of Oceania, originally scheduled for April 23, has been cancelled. A new date for the event will be announced later in the year.
The MACC website & social media pages will be updated as soon as a new date has been advised.
This multimedia performance by world-renowned spoken word poets, Jocelyn Kapumealani Ng and Terisa Siagatonu, is presented in anticipation of Ng's forthcoming Control + Release + Restraint at the Hawai’i State Art Museum in Honolulu.
Navigating themes of repatriation, the writers explore the questions of “who has control of your story,” “who has the power to release it,” and “where do we find restraint?”
This program is inspired by the Smithsonian's presentation of She Who Dies to Live at the Ae Kai Culture Lab in 2017 in Honolulu.
There will be a post-performance talk-story/Q&A session.
Co-presented by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center.
