X if it’s true that the ancient founders chose the site after consulting the omens, then, and also because we have lived there a long time, the place is so sacred to us that we cannot abandon it.

DIASPORA AS METAMORPHOSIS - SELF-DISCOVERY AS MELODRAMA - FOLLOW THE PORTAL INSIDE, OUTSIDE, AND BACK IN - PLIGHT OF THE ALBATROSS
Connie Fu (of performative duo yFFy) plays the Portal of Answers in PLIGHT OF THE ALBATROSS, a multimedia performance braiding together historic queer Houston-based publications, stories of self-discovery, and Asian diaspora, and questions about connection and community in the present. What begins as a one-person play expands to include the audience in a collective melodrama. The whole performance functions as a ritual, during which the original intent of local print publications to disseminate news, issue warnings, and connect members of the queer community and subcommunities is brought forth as a collection of sentient specters.
