Something In The Air

Drama student production · Ages 14+ · world premiere · United States of America

Where is the in-between? In the wake of the anti-Asian hate crimes across our country, Something In The Air is a play that focuses on the lives of eight very different Asian/Asian-American college students living in America. These eight individuals come from different walks of life and from all over the diaspora, representing the diverse realities of AAPI college students in the country. They arrive at the infamous Denver Airport, ready to take flight for spring break, and, given its otherworldly nature– are forced to deal with issues within fiction and reality. A story that combines mystery, conspiracy theories, myths, and generational stories.

A dark sci-fi tale of “spring break gone wrong” about identity, culture, dreams, and the reality of living as a young Asian in America today. (CalArts student production)
