Dixon Place will present the world premiere of MLCG (My Little China Girl), the latest in downtown theater artist Soomi Kim's series of theatrical works exploring the Asian-American experience. The production will play six performances Fridays and Saturdays from November 3-18.

MLCG (My Little China Girl) is written and choreographed by Kim and directed by Leta Tremblay. Mia Chung is the dramaturg.

The show is described as follows: "When David Bowie died, performing artist and choreographer Soomi Kim was suddenly reminded of her own coming-of-age as a Korean-American in the MTV generation and her adolescent desire to be the exotic Asian woman in Bowie's 'China Girl' video. MLCG (My Little China Girl) is a high-octane solo performance that deals with Ms. Kim's experiences as a first generation Korean-American, tackling themes of Western standards of beauty, the deep and physical pain of loss, and yearning for approval — from her father, from society, and from the white male icon on her TV screen."
