Published by University of Mitchigan

The Multimedia Performances of Dan Kwong includes scripts - Tales From the Fractured Mao & Monkhood in Three Easy Lessons & The Dodo Vacine & Correspondence of a Dangerous Enemy Alien

Dan Kwong's groundbreaking work is known as "self-performance", which takes its inspiration from autobiographical material, delving into the complexities of identity as a working-class Chinese-Japanese-American male growing up in Los Angelos

The book's interviews reveal Kwong's personal and artistic influences, his evolution into a performance artist, plus his philosophical and technical approaches to art-making

This richly illustrated collection of texts also includes scripts - Tales From the Fractured Mao & Monkhood in Three Easy Lessons & The Dodo Vacine & Correspondence of a Dangerous Enemy Alien plus shorter pieces and essays

"Somehow, Kwong has held onto his sense of childlike wonder about the cosmos, and that awe informs his free-wheeling and uproarious performance" ~ Asian Week

"He weaves striking, multi-focus stage pictures around simple monologues about his Chinese and Japanese grandfathers, ironic accounts of his own childhood, and litanies of the trials facing Asian American males" ~ L.A. Times

"Saturated with high-spirited enthusiasm . . . a refreshingly forthright approach to his often dark material" ~ Chicago Tribune

"Kwong's humor is warm and loving . . . it stems from a delightfully twisted taste for the absurdity of human behavior. . . . Be prepared to laugh, to be moved, and to fall in love with a performer" ~ L.A. Reader
