Written and performed by fellow ASO member Viet-Dung Nguyen (The Monkey King, Orlando Fringe 2012), Reincarnation Soup is a mythic tale of soup, Saigon, and recycled souls. This intimate solo show will be reprised at the 23rd Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival in May. (Reincarnation is making a comeback!) The play explores Vietnamese memory and mythology through the eyes of eight different characters.
The title refers to the myth of Mạnh Bà, an old blind woman who guards the border between death and rebirth. Before allowing souls to move on to the next life, Mạnh Bà gives them a bowl of memory-erasing soup. Join the Vietnamese souls in this play as they brew stories that are both personal and universal.
