THE WONG STREET JOURNAL
Meet & Greet + Performance

March 7-12, 2016


The Wong Street Journal is a solo theater work written and performed by performance artist and comedian Kristina Wong, combining self-skewering personal narrative with a hilarious interrogation of America's legacy on the rest of the world. The Wong Street Journal tells the true story of how Wong, as a not-so-white savior, became a hip hop star in Northern Uganda. Part plushy TED lecture, part amateur hip-hop extravaganza, and part travelogue, The Wong Street Journal breaks down the complexities of global poverty, privilege and economic theory using uneasy-to-read charts, live hashtag wars, and riveting slideshows from post-conflict Northern Uganda. All of this plays against an all felt version of the New York Stock Exchange that Wong sewed with her own hands. As part of Wong's time in Minneapolis, she took part in a community meet & greet. The Wong Street Journal was presented as part of the Catalyst Series at Intermedia Arts.
