Kristina Wong 2020 Tech Rehearsal_Skirba

Kristina Wong for Public Office

Performance artist, comedian, and elected representative Kristina Wong is taking her raucous campaign online to arouse civic engagement and counter-hijack our democracy! An actual elected representative of Koreatown in Los Angeles, she was once a scrappy performance artist with a bright future in reality television. Now, the political system she used to ridicule is the one she’s become!!! Is she more effective as a performance artist or a politician? Is there actually a difference between performance art and politics? Can she Abolish ICE?! 

 

This interactive, 65-minute comedic performance mashes up campaign rallies, church revivals, and solo theater shows to uncover the history of voting, what it means to run for local office, and the impact artists can have on democracy. Originally built to tour alongside the rallies leading up to the 2020 Presidential election against a charming hand-sewn felt set she sewed herself, this rally is now being broadcast live from her home to yours!

 

Want a zoom screenshot with a real-life elected official? This rally will be followed by a candidate “Meet & Greet” with Kristina!
