PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS



SPAM IRON CHEF


SPAM is one of the most popularly recognized and common legacies of war and US militarism in our homelands and other US-occupied regions of the world. During World War II, 15 million cans were fed to troops each week and by the end of the war, 90 percent of all Hormel canned goods were going to military forces or military aid programs. Today, 100 million pounds (45 million kg) of Spam are sold around the world, with the highest levels of consumption in Hawai`i (5.5 cans per year per Hawaiian) and South Korea. The SPAM Iron Chef will contribute to the fun and hunger-filling element of the event to learn about different ways in which various impacts of US militarism influenced not only our political situation, but what we eat!

DOHEE LEE performs HONPURI - REPOSE THE SOULS


The title of this dance premiere refers to the souls, not only of those who have passed away at the war or somewhere else, but of our souls as well, which need to find repose from sorrow and the vicissitude of life. Dohee performs both music and dance (Korean traditional dance and improvisation) and has toured throughout South Korea, Japan, China and the United States. Her past performances include solo and collaborative shows at the San Francisco ethnic dance festival, the Asian American jazz festival, the Asian Art Museum, the Julia Morgan Theater and the Asian American Arts Festival. Dohee also teaches Korean drumming and dance at the Korean Youth Cultural Center (KYCC) where she works as the artistic director.

PROLETARIAT BRONZE


Proletariat Bronze is dedicated to sharing arts in building hope, unity and learning while also exposing the dark sides of our modern and historic realities to shed a light to truth. Proletariat Bronze is a collective movement of professional pan Asian American blue collar poets simultaneously existing as writers, teachers, musicians, counselors, activists, students, artists, copy store clerks, janitors, truck drivers, and more, dedicated to bringing a voice to the struggles of all people and varying multiethnic communities.

Ninotchka Rosca is also a critically acclaimed writer, author of two novels, two short story collections and one non-fiction book. Women's Peace Day will also celebrate the launching of a book co-authored by Ms. Rosca along with Professor Jose Maria Sison entitled "Jose Ma. Sison: At Home in the World." Jose Ma. Sison is known for having re-established the Communist Party of the Philippines, one of the 17 organizations under the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP).
