Interweaving visceral contemporary dance movement, spoken word, and experimental film projections, Skin We Wrought contemplates how identity can be negotiated and performed. This embodied performance explores themes of silence, assimilation, resilience, and community through a series of vignettes. The work is inspired by Asian American heritage sourced from a diverse range of movement and imagery, figurative and abstract, and the poetic personal to explore current socio-political contexts. Skin We Wrought was created in partial satisfaction of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of California, Irvine and premiered in 2019.
