Esther Chae performed her one-woman show, So the Arrow Flies, here at Bennett Media Studio on May 14, 15, 16. She performed four different characters,and miraculously went in and out of four monologues, which thread seamlessly and intertwined into a wholesome story of love, identity, betrayal, and war. Her timely representation of racial identities and conflicts aroused such emotional response among the audience.
To me, she was riveting and enjoyable to watch for 1 hour and 10 minutes, on all three events.
As the story unfolded, her intensity and range of emotions was wonderful to watch and experience.
And after each performance, we had a different “Artist Talkback” discussion on 3 different main topics.
I hosted the first evening discussion, and enjoyed the conversational ” give-and-take” in what proved to be an intimate setting.
Here are some of the photos taken on the first evening’s performance.
