About the Performance:
Kristina Wong and the performers met over eight weeks to develop a poignant, humorous theatrical performance. The participants used improv games, Theater of the Oppressed exercises and comedy writing exercises to craft an original performance. The performance was inspired by the findings of the UCLA Labor Center’s I am a #YoungWorker Research Project.
This project was made possible with an Artist-in-Residence grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
