A NYC theatre collective
The Sống Collective was founded by Vietnamese Theatre artists: David Lee Huynh, Carolina Do, and Jonathan Castanien, in the spring of 2019 as a response to the United States’ sharp cuts to refugee resettlement in the face of a global refugee crisis.
The Sống Collective’s mission is to reclaim the Vietnamese American narrative by creating development and performance opportunities for emerging artists of color. We nurture a community of artists whose work explores questions of identity, race, intersectionality, immigration, and the refugee experience. We are dedicated to telling stories that dare to subvert preconceptions of Asian Americans.
