Running time approximately 50 minutes

Luke Landric Leonard is the 12 year old boy in a Workshop Performance of Kirk Lynn’s new one-person play. The Cold Record, the story of a boy who left school with a fever more days than anyone else ever in the history of fevers and the trouble he got into for loving the school nurse. Co-Directed by Leonard’s 13 year old daughter, Gates.

MLCG (My Little China Girl)
When David Bowie died, performing artist Soomi Kim was suddenly reminded of her own coming of age as a Korean American in the MTV generation and her adolescent desire to be the exotic Asian woman in Bowie's China Girl video. MLCG (My Little China Girl), created by Kim in collaboration with director Suli Holum (Pig Iron Theatre, Stein| Holum Projects) and video artist Kevan Loney, is a high octane solo performance that traverses Kim's experiences as a first generation Korean American navigating the tyranny of Western perceptions of beauty; the absence of Asians in mainstream American media while coping with profound loss.
