In 2016, interdisciplinary artist Kalean Ung learned of a drawer in her father’s study, filled with letters from family and friends desperate to escape the genocide that befell Cambodia with the rise of the Khmer Rouge. In Letters from Home, she examines her own life through the stories her father (acclaimed composer Chinary Ung) told her of arriving in America in the 1960’s as a young music student and his subsequent quest to rescue family members. Through song, storytelling, and the letters written to her father during the genocide, she probes 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.
