During this difficult time of the COVID 19 pandemic, we spend so much time with our family. What can be a better opportunity for us to know and understand each other more? Puppetry artist Spica Wobbe interviewed her mom and used it as inspiration to create the show Hand in Hand. From these interviews and her childhood memories Spica turned those stories into shadows. The image of a mother holding her daughter’s hand conveys how the previous generation took care of the next generation. Through shadow, light, music and storytelling, it also tells how Spica's mother, a self-taught artist, Ms. Shia Zhaozhi, used her paintings to document her life stories growing up in Taipei, Taiwan.
Beginning Tuesday, September 30, join Spica as she presents her new performance, Hand in Hand! In the weeks following the performance, Spica will lead two workshops in storytelling and shadow theater. Come learn with the artist and create your own story and bring it to life with shadow puppetry! The performance and workshops will be held in English and Mandarin.
It is highly encouraged that people attend all three events in the series, however, audiences can select any number of events (and content will still be understandable).
Queens Council on the Arts (QCA) and Flushing Town Hall are pleased to present a present a virtual reading of Marcus Yi’s musical Lucky 88, a new theatre piece set in a Flushing food court. The show was selected by local Flushing community members, or “art commissioners,” as part of QCA’sArtist Commissioning Program. Inspired by all of the food courts in Flushing, this new musical uses the food court environment to explore the multi faceted lives of people that the average American might not otherwise get a chance to know.
The show focuses on 3 food stalls and the people that work there: 60 year old Shen Zha Wang at the hand pulled noodle stall struggling to put his son through law school; 50 year old widow Mei Ling Fu at the dumpling stall who is ready to start dating again; and 50 year old Si Ling Xiu at the boba tea stall hiding her cancer diagnosis from her daughter.
