I was invited to "kick it" with the performance artist and comedian Kristina Wong at a meet and greet called, "Getting deeeep inside Kristina Wong." Sassy, right? I would be out of my mind to turn down an opportunity to meet an honest to God Jezebel writer and self-described "subversive, humorous, and endearingly inappropriate" artist. And as a fellow feminist and social justice advocate, I adore her ability to take on serious issues with both comedy and compassion.
Kristina shows off her handiwork, a felt vagina puppet,
that she creates and then donates the proceeds to Volunteer Action Network.
Artist Sha models one of the dresses that Kristina sells for charity and poses for a few shots with Eyenga who is the new Executive Director of Intermedia Arts.
The Wong Street Journal
Written & performed by Kristina Wong
Directed by Emily Mendelsohn
A new solo theater work combining self-skewering personal narrative with a hilarious interrogation of America's legacy on the rest of the world. Critics are calling The Wong Street Journal “extremely entertaining,” “hilarious,” and “deeply thought-provoking.”
