Some Nobodies! by Jueun Kang and Che’Li – April 19 & 21

Gunny and Chiku are the lonely kings of two uncomplete countries who encounter each other in this personal coming-of-age epic, based on Emily Dickinson’s poem, “I am Nobody! Who are You?”. Together, they uncover exiled parts of each other that long for companionship in a disintegrating playpen. The two gossip through grotesque puppetry and clown, indulging their mocking hearts and sanctifying fugitive shelter for their most ugly and beautiful selves.

Gunny: Jueun Kang

Chiku: Che’Li
