POOL OF UNKNOWN WONDERS: UNDERTOW OF THE SOUL
On behalf of the Japanese American Women Alumnae of UC Berkeley (JAWAUCB), the UC Berkeley Japanese American Studies Advisory Committee, and the Contemporary Asian Theater Scene (CATS), please join us for the world premiere showing of “Pool of Unknown Wonders: Undertow of the Soul” and a special post-production discussion with award-winning playwright Philip Kan Gotanda on Saturday, September 15th, at 4 PM at Julia Morgan Hall located at 1821 Catalina Avenue in Berkeley.
At the center of this surreal drama is six unexpected companions who find themselves on a voyage that leads to the darkest corners of their own humanity – and beyond.
An exploration of identity, community, and prejudice, this tale inspired by Hermann Hesse’s Journey to the East offers a fresh, visceral, and urgent exploration of the human longing for wholeness, identity, and belonging.
For tickets and additional information about the production, please go to: Pool of Unknown Wonders Tickets and Info for 9/15 at 4 PM.

Jory - A movie short
CATS is proud to be Associate Producer of the film short, JORY.
JORY is a story about a young Asian American teenager who struggles to find a home between his love for dance and his relentless, immigrant parents who want what's "best for him."
The film is inspired by the hardships of first-generation Asian Americans who grow up with "tiger parents" and are constantly told to meet extremely high expectations, whether that means sacrificing sleep, extracurricular activities, or mental health.
This short film will explore the perspectives of both first-generation Asian Americans and their immigrant parents and what it means to be a good parent or a good immigrant son/daughter or none of those.xt
