Burning 100 Demons

Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 – Friday, Feb. 1, 2019

06:30 PM


Burning 100 Demons is a Lunar New Year ritual that celebrates our queer ancestors through spoken, written, and embodied poetry, planned in conjunction with Antonius Bui’s yêu em dài lâu (me love you long time) exhibit at Lawndale Art Center. Inspired by Lynda Barry’s One! Hundred! Demons!, we will be reflecting on our demons of 2018, the life moments that haunt you, form you, and stay with you. We invite the community to burn their demons and dream new intentions as a way to bring forth the Year of the Pig. Ching-In Chen and Antonius Bui, the co-organizers of the event, are honored to be collaborating with artists Koomah and Olaniyi Akindiya to create an intersectional space for healing and catharsis.

We kindly request that you bring a sacred object of your choice to place on or near the altar in the exhibit for the duration of the performance. Dinner will be provided the night of the event.

This event is co-sponsored by CHAA (Collective of Houston Asian Americans).
