Something In The Air Set To Premiere At Hollywood Fringe Festival

"These are our stories, not theirs."

After a successful workshop production at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) Coffeehouse Theater, Something In The Air will premiere this summer at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

An original play from BFA students at CalArts, Something In The Air focuses on the lives of eight college students from across the Asian diaspora living in America. They all arrive for spring break at the Denver International Airport, popular among conspiracy theorists, but are forced to deal with issues in both fiction and reality.

The play is a dark, sci-fi "spring break gone wrong" dramedy about identity, culture, stories, dreams, and the reality of living as a young Asian in America today during a period of rising hate crimes against Asians across the country.

The show has four performances at the Hudson Backstage Theater located at 6539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038. Thursday, 6/16 through Saturday, 6/18 at 8:15 PM PST with a Saturday matinee at 3:15 PM PST. There will also be a ticketed livestream of the 6/16 show for those who want to attend virtually. 

Written and directed by CalArts BFA Acting student Chacha Tahng, the play features an entirely pan-Asian cast of CalArts BFA actors including Brian Nai, Chacha Tahng, Ishika Muchhal, Ling Chang, Sanghun Kim, Shireen Heidari, Skylar Shen, and Willington Liu.

Prior to its premiere at Hollywood Fringe, the show had a workshop production at CalArts in May that was a "phenomenal production" and "really funny and really touching" by audience members.
