An internationally acclaimed director, choreographer, and artist, Chong conceived and directed what has become an ongoing series of performances that explore the effects of history, culture, and ethnicity. Using bilingual members of local communities to both write and act out the narrative, Chong has created over 40 versions of Undesirable Elements, which have taken place in cities across the U.S. and around the world.
