At this special anniversary performance, the renowned spoken word duo invites a showcase of fellow artists to share poetry, song, movement, and memories celebrating 10 years of YELLOW RAGE!  Join us for a not-to-be-missed event filled with more than enough creative talent and energy to inspire us for the next decade!

Michelle Myers and Catzie Vilayphonh met in the summer of 2000 in a writing and performance workshop at Asian Arts Initiative.  Over the years, YELLOW RAGE has sought to make positive impact through their poetry.  They have performed on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam and at an incredible array of colleges and community venues.  Drawing from their own unique experiences, individual political ideologies, and personal life philosophies as Asian American, Michelle and Catzie’s poems address issues which explore the intersections of race, culture, gender, community, and self.
