SPIRIT & SWORDED TREKS
Written by Maria Cheng
Directed by Maria Cheng & Tria Xiong
What do Johnny Unitas, ecstatic sex, beheading a Barbie doll and martial arts have to do with the Tao of spirituality? Cheng weaves tai-chi forms, storytelling, stir fry cooking and stand up comedy into a tour de force performance work, essaying the struggles of trying to maintain a spiritual path as a modern Chinese American woman.
