Did Yoko Ono really break up The Beatles? Could Gloria Abe Chapman have saved John Lennon? Why do these egotistical white guys always marry Asians? These questions keep Ruby Okamoto up at night, and she needs answers.
In Yoko’s Husband’s Killer’s Japanese Wife, Gloria, five Asian American women are summoned into Ruby’s fantastical dreamscape. Here, subconscious thoughts manifest as real-life rockstars and movie monsters. They journey, dream, and address the hard-to-define-but-definitely-there connection between Asians in America.
Lead Vocals by Rheanna Atendido, Emy Coligado, and Sara Porkalob.
