Jul 17th 2019

We will be returning to the National Cambodian Heritage Museum with our next Speaking Truths Series. It is scheduled for Wednesday July 17 and the show starts at 7:30pm.

$5 suggested donation, but we won’t turn anyone away.

The theme: Straddling the Borderland.

Borderland can mean many different things. It can be as concrete as the physical borders erected between nations. Or it can be metaphorical to embody emotional, political, psychological, or cultural meanings. Is it possible that the borderland is not meant to be crossed but straddled?

What does it mean to straddle the borderland then?

Eight storytellers will explore this theme. We are excited to have:
Beatriz Badikian-Gartler
Chris Detrych
Xander Krohn
Jessica Liau
Alina Nuth
Alejandra Zoë Vázquez
Bettina Zachariah.

You may not see these tellers often, but they all have important stories to share about the borderland upon which they straddle. Stories that demand our undivided attention.

Speaking Truths Series is produced and hosted by Ada Cheng, a professor-turned-storyteller, solo performer, and storytelling show producer. She has been featured at storytelling shows and performed her two solo shows all over the country. Ada is the producer and the host of four storytelling shows, including Pour One Out: A Monthly Storytelling Series, Am I Man Enough?: A Storytelling/Podcasting Show, Talk Stories: An Asian American/Asian Diaspora Storytelling Show, and Speaking Truths Series.

Speaking Truths Series seeks to bring performance art to community spaces. This show is open to and inclusive of people of all identities, backgrounds, and experiences.

National Cambodian Heritage Museum is wheelchair accessible.
