COLLABORATORY X.2 – “The Air We Breathe”

Directed by Dan Kwong and Young Ae Park, Collaboratory X, Phase 2,”The Air We Breathe” (TAWB) is a collaborative performance about Long Beach, CA’s air quality, its impact, and the resilience of the community. Written and performed by local residents using humor, song and expressive movement to share personal narratives as well as community gathered stories, TAWB puts a human face on the complex issues facing an area bombarded by pollution from the surrounding freeways, oil refineries, auto-body shops and one of the biggest port complexes in the world.
