Hmong Museum proudly presents our second Hmong Chronicles project, an original performance called “Pob Laib Laus,” created by May Lee-Yang (writer and playwright), Phasoua Vang (actress), Paj Tsab (Pang Chang, elder), Paj Lis Thoj (Pa Lee Thao, elder).
POJ LAIB LAUS. Old Gangster Ladies. Bad Girls. Badass Women. However you want to translate it, four Hmong women of different ages combine forces to speak their minds, tell their truths, re-tell unconventional folktales, and make some original comedy. Follow along as May Lee-Yang and Phasoua Vang continue the Hmong oral storytelling tradition by way of wringing stories from the elders and sharing one of their own.
Space is limited, please register on Eventbrite to reserve your spot here https://goo.gl/N6eEH5.
