There is some cool stuff happening in Oz. Here’s a performance artist/writer from Down Under who does some really interesting racegender twisty stuff. I especially like the story about suitmation:
Tom Cho

Found out about him from Deborah Madsen, a Switzerland-based Canadianist who has written a very thoughtful entry on my work for the Greenwood Encyclopedia of Asian American Writers. (I’m not sure how I feel about the way we racialized Canucks become American overseas, but it seems to be standard practice.)

Enjoying these global connections. Thinking through a piece now on the newly privileged (but also reified) mobility of certain kinds of racialization and the exceptional abuse of kindred kinds.

    Heya LL,
    So surprising you’d com across Tom’s work. Have been in touch with him o’er the last several years, on and off, and most recently have been trying to arrange a f2f meetup since am now in melb. Will be seeing Tom (along with Tseen et al) on sat for yum cha. FYI, would like to get him out to canada in the next year or so, and also to the cyprus performance symposium. The circle gets smaller as it goes global.. +a
