EWF x LIMINAL: Interstital
June 27, 2019

Salman Rushdie notes that the diasporic identity is “plural and partial” – sometimes we straddle two cultures, and other times, we fall between two stools. What does it mean to be both? What could it mean to stand on the hyphen that connects and separates; to build a self within interstitial space?

Working with the Emerging Writers Festival, I produced an night, to explore this idea through poetry, prose and comics.

Featuring Rachel Ang, Heather Joan Day, Peo Michie, Darlene Silva Soberano and Jessie Tu.
