One of the most creative local arts organizations, the Vietnamese American Society for Creative Arts and Music (VASCAM), returns to Musco Center with Obsessed Pho More, hot on the heels of their popular operatic production Of Times and Perspectives in 2018. VASCAM’s mission is to cultivate, nurture and promote creative arts and music by Vietnamese Americans and Vietnamese overseas, as well as cross-cultural Vietnamese-U.S. matters. The Society provides a platform for creative artists from the past, current, and future generations to share their art works both within and outside the Vietnamese American communities.
Historic poetry, social conflicts, childhood memories, and food have inspired four multi-generational Vietnamese-American composers. The evening features choreography by Carla Körbes, former L.A. Dance Project associate director, and Sarah Wroth, ballet master and former Boston Ballet dancer.
