bi/chotomy is an exploration of racial androgyny. Shaped by influences of bharatanatyam & choreopoetry, tea & coconuts, bridges & oceans, madness & queerness, family & ancestry, it unfurls one person’s path of existing simultaneously as brown & white, first-generation & second-generation, mad & brilliant, binary & non-binary, marginalized & model-minority.
