Asiamnesia is an exploration of the stereotypes that plague Asian/Asian American actresses throughout their careers, as well as a celebration of their versatility and endurance. Through the inclusion of various historical figures and a look into contemporary shows and casting processes, Asiamnesia discusses the politics behind Asian/Asian American representation in the American entertainment industry. Scenes shift from realistic to conceptual, metaphorical to literal, classical to postmodern. It is a show sure to leave audience members thinking deeply about the challenges faced by Asian women, not only in entertainment but in society as well.

A talkback will follow each screening.

  • Thursday night with cast
  • Friday night with production crew
  • Saturday matinee with PMA Faculty; Christine Bacareza Balance, Samantha Sheppard, Karen Jaime, and Jeffrey Palmer
