The 2022 CounterPulse Performing Diaspora program presents Try, Hye! by Vera Hannush/VERA! and Dwelling for Unsettling by Unsettled/Soiled Group.

In Try, Hye!, Armenian drag king VERA! explores their complicated lineage by learning from their queer SouthWest Asian and North African (SWANA) diasporic dance teachers. Dance, drag, theater, performance, comedy, and art as healing.

Part immersive theater and part community gathering, Dwelling for Unsettling interrogates and resists the entanglement of the diasporic and the settler colonial for Asian diasporic communities on Turtle Island. Drawing from archival studies, family histories, and movement research, this project is an invitation to imagine new embodied senses of who we are and how we move in Asian diasporas that refuse further incorporation into the settler colonial project.
