Join us for an artist talk with Bina’s Six Apples playwright Lloyd Suh and director Eric Ting that explores the creative process of transforming a family tale into a work of theatre. The talk focuses on Suh’s approach to re-imagining a piece of family lore into a dramatic work as well as the collaboration between playwright and director to stage an intergenerational play located in history, but not bound to it. This conversation will spotlight the artists’ careers and situate Bina’s Six Apples in the field of Asian American theatre.
Q&A moderated by the Asian American Journalist Association - Atlanta Chapter.
This talk is free and open to the public. Tickets must be reserved in advance for the 7:30pm performance of Bina’s Six Apples.
