A whimsical collage of folktale, ritual, dance and historical text, BIG FLOWER EATER is a devised multimedia play that explores the untold history of women in Asia through shamanism in three different cultures: Hmong, Taiwanese and Korean.

In the play, a young Taiwanese-American woman pastes her grandmother’s fortunes on her bathroom wall, setting off a host of unearthly activities in her small Lower East Side apartment. The ghost of her eccentric grandmother takes up residence in the ceiling causing a constant leak and attracting the lost soul of an epileptic Hmong girl. The mysterious malfunctions of the bathroom are finally explained with a visit from a Korean-American friend, whose disturbing receptivity to the spirits leads to a revelation regarding the long tradition of shamanism in her now-Christian family.
