In 2016, Kalean Ung learned of a drawer in her father’s study, filled with letters from family and friends living in desperate circumstances in refugee camps and detailing their lives during the genocide that befell Cambodia with the rise of the Khmer Rouge. Letters from Home examines her own life through the stories her father (acclaimed composer Chinary Ung) told her of arriving in America in the 1960s as a young music student and his subsequent quest to rescue family members. Through song, storytelling, and the text of the letters, she navigates the boundary between her family’s history and her own experience as a bi-racial, first generation American. First presented as a reading at our iambic lab series, this extraordinary collaboration between father and daughter takes the next step in its development in the ISC Studio before embarking on tour. FOUR PERFORMANCES ONLY.
