Speaking Truths Series

Speaking Truths Series serves larger purposes, such as connecting stories with the meaning of “truth,” public vs. private tales, the universal vs. the particular, identity, power, shame, trauma, and vulnerability.

This show grounds performance art at community and museum spaces, develops talents from within through passing on the art form, and connects stories of people and with stories of space, place, and community.

This show serves to respond to urgent social issues of our time. It is about preserving history and engages community members in oral history in action.

Created and hosted by Ada Cheng.
