ABOUT THE PROJECT:
The Origin(s) Project: Memoirs in Motion is an evening-length pairing of two one-woman shows by celebrated Korean adoptee artists Sun Mee Chomet and Katie Hae Leo, directed by Zaraawar Mistry.
Through innovative performance-based art, The Origin(s) Project: Memoirs in Motion seeks to further contribute to the adoptee story, told from an adult adoptee perspective. Chomet's How to Be a Korean Woman recounts her reunion with her birth family using text, music, and movement to explore how this affected her sense of what it means to be a woman. Leo's N/A uses narrative storytelling and speculative mythmaking to explore her body and personal health, reconciling her present with an unknown genetic past.
