    Reclaiming Vietnam goes to San Francisco Fringe

    Help Reclaiming Vietnam broaden its reach and make its west coast debut in San Francisco!

     San Francisco, CA, United States
    This is a Fiscally-Sponsored Project

    Fiscally Sponsored by Fractured Atlas


    Growing up in a bi-racial home with a white mother and a Vietnamese father,
    Kim spent years wishing away her father’s less-than-desirable immigrant
    status and skin color and all the painful family secrets she inherited.
    Determined to face her demons, she joins a volunteer organization in
    Vietnam. As she begins to discover the beauty of her roots, she confronts
    the trauma of her past and put its secrets behind her forever.


    I'm taking my show to California!

    This September, Reclaiming Vietnam is featured in the San Francisco Fringe Festival.

    And I’m inviting YOU to be part of making it all happen. As a sponsored
    project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization,
    Reclaiming Vietnam is eligible for charitable donations. Your contribution
    will help pay festival fees, airfare, advertising, and artist's fees
    including my sound technician, light technician, director, and stage


    I've performed Reclaiming Vietnam at the New York Fringe Festival, the
    Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Emerging Artist Theater Festival at 3 colleges,
    as well as a retreat center, the NYC Asian American Student Conference and
    this play is still going strong. Written by me and directed by Elizabeth
    Browning, the piece addresses issues of culture and identity, shame and
    self-imposed racism. San Francisco is a great audience for this show.

    I so appreciate any amount you can contribute.

    If you can't donate, please know that your encouragement has helped this
    show gain momentum and recognition. And for that, I thank you!

    Please share this site on social media—it’s a huge way for you to help, too!
