King of the Yees @ KDT

King of the Yees @ KDT

Center stage there is a large door, painted a color known as Chinese Red. The ornate gold markings are Chinese characters. The King of the Yees takes us through this door and into a mulitverse of concepts about family, identity, history and politics.

At council meetings, at school board meetings, in the most everyday conversation - I hear people responding in ways that betray the fact that they were not listening. She says this and he responds to that. That was not [...]
