Hmong American Katie Ka Vang finds herself trying to escape by leaving the realities of the American struggle, painful memories, fear and cancer behind her and dancing instead into the fantastical world of Bollywood. Vang and her family spent hours watching Bollywood films with their extravagant plots, brilliant costumes, and music. The performance blends broken prose, monologues, video installation, media art, Bollywood dance numbers and choreography based on Vang’s life’s movements.
