Dickson Court, University of California Los Angeles
Refugee Re/Enactments remembers and claims UCLA's history as holding the largest college campus protest against the war in Southeast Asia at the time. It is a site specific performance that considers the critical role of artists and scholars in expressing complex stories, not simply to simplify or humanize refugees, but also to instill a sense of justice in an increasingly global condition of refugeeism. This performance grapples with the persistence of war memories through the performance of oppositional acts, specifically U.S. war in Southeast Asia in the 1960s and 1970s and UCLA histories of oppositional acts.
Refugee Re/Enactments features the original music of artist Tiffany Lytle. Project Creators: Lucy MSP Burns, Jolie Chea, Tiffany Lytle, with Thu-huong Nguyen-Vo. Project contact: email@example.com.
