About this event:

Created by Julian Ramirez

626 Church St, Evanston, IL 60201, USA

WHAT: Ada Cheng’s solo show

SO WHAT: In this solo, Ada uses personal stories, monologs, and characters to explore her journey as an immigrant woman from East Asia. Stories center around the intersection of race, immigration, gender, and sexuality. She uses “not quite” to connect three main themes: meanings of home, the fractured yet intersectional nature of Asian American identity, and the perils of living under Trump for immigrant women of color. She intends for this show to be an intervention and a challenge to current politics. This is one of the ways she resists and protests as an artist/storyteller/scholar.

NOW WHAT: No cover, but reservations for dinner and storytelling or for storytelling alone are strongly recommended. You can call 847-864-1679 for reservations.
