UNSUNG STORIES: WATERWORKS 2024 Spotlights
A dynamic night of new writing and a glimpse into next year’s WATERWORKS festival! This night of UNSUNG STORIES will showcase three unique and provocative new works selected from 2023 WATERWORKS submissions to be developed and presented during the 2024 WATERWORKS festival:
Selected Scenes from AH WING AND THE AUTOMATON EAGLE by Brandon Zang and Panel Discussion with LingXi Chinese Theatre
AH WING AND THE AUTOMATON EAGLE (2023 WATERWORKS Artist Award Winner) is a steampunk alternate history retelling of the 1877 San Francisco Chinatown riot. The story centers Ah Wing, a 14-year-old genius artificer who is trying to finish his late father’s final project: an automaton bald eagle. Although set in a fictional world, the play is based on real historical tensions that led to massacres in several Chinatowns across the United States in the 19th century. AH WING AND THE AUTOMATON EAGLE captures an era where the American promise of innovation and prosperity was built on the backs of immigrants, whose names and stories have since been erased.
