We all have them. Beliefs, ideas, conceptions of ourselves that have become so entrenched we feel them in our bones. They guide our behavior and become the backbone of our daily routines. We tell ourselves again and again that which we know to be true -- that we are only playacting at being good daughters, just pretending at a capacity for love, merely allowing the masquerade of our heroics to ring true. But, what if our assumptions are wrong? 

Join 2nd Story for an evening of stories charting how we grow to become the people we were always capable of being.

NOTE: Tunnel Vision: Stories of Recognition and Unmasking is presented as part of 2nd Story's "Point of View" programming. Given the nature of 2nd Story's work and the diversity of artists we collaborate with, we have the unique opportunity to build community among and share the stories of marginalized groups by building teams for our shows that share a particular point of view. It is our honor to be a conduit for these collaborations. Tunnel Vision: Stories of Recognition and Unmasking is led, produced, and performed by artists that identify as Asian, Asian American, or Pacific Islander.
