I Am Rachel Chu
Constance Wu. NYU Economics Professor. Asian-American underdog. Model Minority. Romantic Lead. We are not Rachel Chu.
But what would Crazy Rich Asians look like if we were?
Identity, identification and representation collide in this violent act of intercultural appropriation. I AM RACHEL CHU is an act of literary anarchism - watch and listen as we rewrite, rework and revitalise the best-selling book and box-office success with our own personal histories, superimposing ourselves over its so-called relatable protagonist.
Created by Nathan Joe, Amanda Grace Leo, Ravi Gurunathan and Angela Zhang.
Part of Auckland Fringe 19 February - 3 March 2019, as part of Basement Theatre's 2019 Auckland Fringe Festival Provocation: The Ghent Manifesto.
