About Me

Playwright Siting Yang explains: "The issues of colonialism, race, and history have been at the center of my interests and relate to my artistic mission of engaging literary specters in contemporary struggles. I believe as a Chinese-born artist based in the US, I am in a unique position to present to American audiences certain issues that affect the modern world at large but are not a part of the current discourse on anti-racism in the United States. Possessing a personal, direct connection to people who lived in the complicated reality and having been exposed to heated discussions on the topic on Chinese and American social media, I felt compelled to raise questions I still seek https://thedistrictbyha.com/ answers to: What does colonialism look like in our time? How does it function in today's global political-economical agenda? We all know colonialism is ethically bad, but what do we make of ourselves when we're part of its blueprint? I hope Sky of Darkness will inspire the viewers to ponder the state of the world beyond America and extend their perspective on problems usually viewed from a very Western-centric perspective."
