The Emily Project: An “Oymun” Show

theemilyproject-eflyer.jpgWho’s Emily? And what’s an “Oymun” show, you ask?

The Emily Project is named after L.A.-based actress Ms Emily Kuroda, best known for her theater work, as well as for her role as Mrs. Kim on TV’s Gilmore Girls.

An Oymun show is a minimalist theatrical piece, conceived and created through a series of facilitated workshops by a cast of 8-16 and curated by the facilitator/director Jason Oymun Fong.

It features cast members Alberto Isaac, Haruye Ioka, Irene Furukawa, June Lu, Ken Narasaki, Ping Wu, Sab Shimono, Sharon Omi, Takayo Fischer, and of course, Emily Kuroda.

From what I hear, they’ve taken a bunch of serious actors and developed some comedic and poignant vignettes entirely through improvisation. Director Jason Fong has taken some of the improvs and scripted and shaped them into something totally unique. The proceeds will support’s “The Connector Project”, best known for its Tuesday Night Project – an arts space with a focus to 1) strengthen/support the Asian Pacific Islander (API) arts/community voice, 2) connect with other artists, youth, community throughout LA, & 3) connect with people beyond LA through innovative technology/web-based programs.

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
