DISORIENTED, presented by Solo Sundays - 5/22
             * * *  D I S - O r i e n t e d  * * *  
               A Trio of Middle Eastern &
                 Asian American Women

    Cultural indigestion, color-blindness and inter-ethnic vertigo.  Is there a cure?  Is it treatable?  Is it contagious?  That's what three women, Zahra, Thao and Coke -- Iranian, Vietnamese and Okinawan/Japanese -- try to find out as they aim to DIS-ORIENT themselves from external stereotypes and internal expectations.

    This show features a dynamic trio of performers whose individual solo pieces will lead you across a Muslim-Atheist supper table, the Mekong Delta, and Diagnostic Systems of Sexual Dysfunction.  In between each solo performance are smart and biting vignettes -- comic sketches, audience improv games, and contemporary dance -- that will  leave you happy to be as DIS-ORIENTED as they are.

>>  "All Atheists Are Muslim"
         It's time for Zahra and Duncan to move in together.  She just needs to convince her Iranian, Muslim parents that her white, Atheist, Infidel boyfriend should move in with her.  Yup, it's just your regular, everyday story of "Boy meets Girl meets thousands of years of cultural tradition and religious doctrine."  Can she do it? Come find out!  You may even discover your more Muslim than you think.

>> "Soft Tissue"
What makes a girl turn into a woman? Is it easy or is it hard? Do you have to take a test to become a real woman, and how do you know when you are one? These are questions Coke has to navigate by herself, since none of the people or professionals to whom she turns are able to help her body open up and say "yes." During her solitary tour of her body, she bumps into truths about her culture, no, make that plural, cultures, that help her to realize that her tour is not solitary at all.

>>  "Fortunate Daughter"
       Thao, 25, wakes up on a good morning in Vietnam, dons her full-metal jacket and goes deer hunting on Hamburger Hill with Forrest Gump and Martin Sheen.  Only she survives.  Later, her mom takes her to meet her grandmother for the first time.
