This Friday and Saturday cap off two weeks of frequent (and fun!) performances. After featuring at Bloombars’ “The Garden” open mic, two Busboys & Poets open mics, a Campus Progress event, and a One Common Unity event, I am thrilled and honored to end these two weeks with a bang. A bang that tastes like curry and kimchi…pittu and pancit.
On Friday July 2nd, artists representing Subcontinental Drift will be performing at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. The show (free at 6 pm) will be streamed online and archived on the site for later viewing. On Saturday July 3rd, artists representing Sulu DC will be performing at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival (free at 6 pm on the mall; La Fonda stage).
It is really a blessing to not only be able to share my poetry in such esteemed settings, but also to do so as a representative of my culture, my family, and two DC-based arts organizations that have been incredibly supportive of–and inspiring to–me.
