Sweeping Away Evil Panel

Location: Wing on Wo & Co @ 26 Mott St. New York, NY

The Sweeping Away Evil Panel is a part of Emily Mock's 店面 Storefront Residency. Since October, Emily has been holding free workshops teaching paper cutting and shadow puppetry, and inviting participants to create a community shadow puppet theater activating stories about Chinatown, sweeping out evil, building home and safety, and overcoming in 2018.

This event asks panelists from several practices and fields how they “sweep away evil,” how they build home and safety for their communities, and what needs overcoming in the new year.

The panelists featured are:

Donna Mah, Chinese medicine practitioner
Fay Bonas, artist
Jes Tom, stand-up comic and actor
Muriel Miguel, Founder & Artistic Director, Spiderwoman Theater
CAAAV's Chinatown Tenants Union

Please RSVP here. 

We have a suggested donation of $5-10 that goes towards an honorarium for panelists, a master puppeteer performance during the residency window display opening, and materials for the residency. Be sure to RSVP now through Eventbrite!
