Show Notes

Diana Oh's work encompasses multiple performance categories, including but not limited to: music, art, storytelling, and theater. Earlier this year, Diana's The Infinite Love Party was hosted at the Bushwick Starr and is described as "barefoot barefoot potluck dinner, dance party, and sleepover for QTPOC and Their Allies." Their residency at A.R.T. in Boston culminated in Clairvoyance, "an installation series that culminates into a concert and tree planting." For more information about Diana, please visit: Dianaoh.co

Their work challenges the status quo, calls out systemic issues, and creates spaces for healing. In this episode Rachel and Diana talk about Diana's process, J. Lo, sexual liberation, and Diana's latest project My H8 Letter 2 the Gr8 American Theatre. As a fellow Asian artist and maker, Diana and Rachel go deep into why we do what we do, and why affinity spaces are powerful and important to create and maintain.
