Poetry and Performance: Dao Strom

An evening of poetry and performance from Dao Strom, whose work explores hybridity through melding disparate “voices”—written, sung, visual—to contemplate the intersection of personal and collective histories. The New Yorker has called her work “Quietly beautiful … hip without being ironic.” She makes music as The Sea & The Mother and is the author of five books, including a bilingual poetry/art book, a hybrid-form memoir with a song-cycle, a collection of novellas and a novel. She is a founding member of She Who Has No Master(s), a collective project of women artists of the Vietnamese diaspora, as well as the editor of diaCRITICS. Refreshments will follow.
