The Vietnam War’s legacy lives on more than 40 years after its end. Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated composer-performer Vanessa Vân Ánh Võ melds traditional Vietnamese instruments with spoken word and live media to explore the deeply moving story of Vietnam’s war refugees: “Boat People.” In this multi-sensory experience, she triggers memories of the ocean carrying them from Vietnam to freedom.
