As part of Montgomery County Community College’s annual Richard K. Bennett Distinguished Lectureship on Peace and Social Justice series, Kim Chinh’s will present her one-woman performance “Reclaiming Vietnam” on March 9 at Parkhouse Hall Atrium on the College’s Central Campus in Blue Bell.
The performance will also be simulcast to the school’s South Hall Community Room on its West Campus in Pottstown.
“Reclaiming Vietnam” is a 60-minute piece that was written by Kim Chinh and directed by Elizabeth Browning. A talkback discussion will follow the performance.
The piece focuses on Chinh, who grew up in a bi-racial home with a white mother and a Vietnamese father. It covers her journey to discover the beauty of her roots and confront the trauma of her past.
The one-woman performance has been praised by NY Theatre Guide as “the perfect piece to travel across the country, including schools, as it can validate personal quests for self-realization…that so many people share.”
Chinh has been performing her story internationally for several years, including at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015, New York City Fringe Festival in 2016, and the San Francisco Fringe Festival in 2017.
