UC Berkeley Vietnamese Student Association 30th Annual Culture Show 

When: Sun., April 19, 5 p.m. 2009
Price: $12-$20

Every year, the UC Berkeley Vietnamese Student Association stages a tremendous talent showcase that combines atavistic and modern elements. This year, the producers wrote an original fable to glue everything together. Monsoon focuses on the Vietnam War and its aftermath -- particularly the breakup of families, the onset of paranoia, and the struggle to retain a sense of cultural identity and integrity. Part play and part variety show, Monsoon will include hip-hop, poetry, traditional lantern dancing, Vietnamese instruments, lion dancing, and ancient song styles. On Sunday, Apr. 19, at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall. 5 p.m., $12-$20.
