Solo Queens Fest - Kristina Wong's How to Be A Badass Bitch

Bootleg Theater

Los Angeles, CA

$30.00

Within the most “problematic” or “scary” idea for solo performance is ripe material for self-satire and deeper social commentary. Let’s take the ugly things we’ve always wanted to explore and craft them into stunning (if not hilarious) performance work. In this workshop, we’ll use humor, satire, masking, and meta-theatrical devices to make the most dreadful things a little easier to swallow.  Whether or not you have a “bad idea” that you’ve wanted to explore, you’ll leave with a few tools to make more unapologetic writing and performance!  Open to participants of all genders.  

15 people max!

Lead by one of our Solo Queens, The Wong Street Journal's KRISTINA WONG

Kristina Wong
Kristina Wong was recently featured in the New York Times’ Off Color series “highlighting artists of color who use humor to make smart social statements about the sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious ways that race plays out in America today.” She is a performance artist, comedian and writer who has created five solo shows and one ensemble play that have toured across North America and the UK. Her most notable touring show– “Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” looked at the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women and toured dozens of venues across the United States since 2006.

Her newest solo show “The Wong Street Journal” navigates White Privilege as an Asian American “Mzungu” in East Africa. She spent a month in Northern Uganda recording a hit rap album “Mzungu Price” with local rappers and doing research for that show. Kristina’s mail order bride website is www.bigbadchinesemama.com. She has taught at Cal Arts in the MFA Creative Writing Program and twice given the commencement speech at UCLA, her alma mater.
