disOrientalism OPEN MIC:
A full on art party hosted by Kate Rigg and featuring some of New York’s most talented Asian American Performers. Spoken word, music, comedy, improv all for free at one of NYC’s hippest clubs. Started at 730 and went until we run out of ART!! Artists were invited to perform 5-10 minute sets and a highlight of the night was when local Ramen Noodle Bar owner of Marafuku Ramen stumbled into the show, and was so impressed that he returned with enough noodles and food for everyone in the show. He happened to show up with the Rame JUST as the shw hosts were onstage dressed as a cup of instant ramen and a Sriracha bottle. The ancestors would have been proud!
