After a long, bitter winter and a busy, busy spring, I am at last able to return to that project that has been on the burner for awhile now: the Mae Sway Project.
I am in the midst of gathering the personal stories and adventures of some of the Burmese refugees that have resettled in the greater Lehigh Valley. I am also in the midst of discovering a resonance within me as I talk to these folks. My three-year-old self recognizes the faces, the names, the foods, the voices. These people are from the land of my birth. It’s been interesting to be re-introduced as an adult.
Stay tuned for what happens next. The performance will premiere in January of 2016 at Touchstone Theatre!
