Support Kyoung’s Pacific Beat’s tour of PILLOWTALK to Chicago!

Kyoung’s Pacific Beat has been invited to perform PILLOWTALK as part of the Consortium of Asian American Theaters and Artists (CAATA)’s “Revolutionary Acts” Conference and Festival at Victory Gardens this August 2018. We’re honored to be part of this national platform presenting the best Asian-American theater in the country. Read more about the festival in The Chicago Tribune.

Set in Brooklyn 2017, PILLOWTALK brings to life one night in the lives of Sam and Buck, a recently married interracial couple. Through a formal exploration of theatrical naturalism and the codified gender norms of ballet’s pas de deux, PILLOWTALK queers the intersections of race, gender, and class to illuminate how liberation and oppression co-exist in our most intimate spaces.

PILLOWTALK is performed by two queer men of color, JP Moraga and Basit Shittu, and features live music by Helen Yee, choreography by Katy Pyle, set and lighting design by Marie Yokoyama, sound design by Lawrence Schober, and costume design by Andrew Jordan.

We are asking you to help us raise $5,000 in support of our tour to Chicago. Your support will go directly towards the payment of key artist fees, travel, and production costs to make this show happen!
