NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT
What would it mean if one could draw up the perfect mate or the ideal lover? What would this person look like? How would they behave? Would you imagine such a relationship to be blissfully tranquil or troubling and complex? What are the implications of such a fantasy?
New Media artist Daniel Anderson invites Asian-American actors to participate in an experimental video artwork, which proposes to address these and other questions around race, sexuality, identity, and desire. Drawing from scripted dialogues, improvisational exercises, and a character abstract, selected actors will ‘audition’ on-camera for the role of the artist’s idealized boyfriend. The auditions will themselves be a venue for experimentation and collaboration – and will ultimately be edited for gallery exhibition.

Seeking: Male / 25-30 yrs. / Asian
Tsumori is sly and irreverent, sharp, and a bit strange. He is fascinated by odd and archaic music. By day, he works in a little book store; by night, he bicycles drunkenly around Echo Park and plays in a slapdash string quartet. Tsumori has a way of being both elegant and prickly, witty and obscene all at the same time, apparently indifferent to the usual codes of social decorum. Tsumori emigrated to this country as a child with his family. He identifies more with fragments of art and music counter-culture than any particular notions of Americanism. Like many young gay men on the verge of adulthood, he is caught between the freedoms of youth and a desire for trust and love.
