One last THANK YOU: Sold-out shows, pics, + press!!!

Posted by Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai (Creator)

Dear Team Say You Heard My Echo:

THANK YOU from the bottoms of our hearts for your support to making a fantastic run at HERE Arts Center possible :) We did in fact also sell out our last two performances of the show, and got another lovely press mention in Our Chinatown!  

The most commonly used words that I heard from folks to describe it were: moving, beautiful, amazing, and complex. So, I'd most definitely say we're very proud and happy with this run! Our creative team has been taking a little time to re-coup after the run (and then I got knocked out by the flu last week after touring in Florida).

We will have video clips of the show up soon, and are very happy to announce that we've been getting inquiries from coast to coast for "Say You Heard My Echo" - so this will definitely NOT be the last time we're putting the show up :) If you know of a presenter that is interested in getting more information about the show, email our producing team at

For backers who have chapbooks, CD's, or downloads coming your way - your packages/downloads will be on their way before the end of this week. (Sorry for the delay!)

  • If you haven't already emailed us with your choice of chapbooks, CD's, or downloads, definitely email our team at with your preferences and mailing address, and we'll be emailing to follow up and verify this week.

Here are few select pics from our run (Courtesy of Set Designer Extraordinaire Chien-Yu Peng) - you can check more out at our FB Photo Album - PLUS our "What is Sacred to You?" card that we invited audience members to fill out and tie with a red ribbon to our set post-show. If you'd like to check out more of these cards, you can find them all at (Courtesy of our Producer Extraordinaire Ying Le)!

THANK YOU SO MUCH. We're proud to have our crew 158 Backers strong (and more who contributed after the deadline) in making this project come to fruition - onwards and upwards. It made all of the hard work more than worth it!

Excited for what's next to come for "Say You Heard My Echo" and for all of you to have been a part of its creation -

Poetry always,

Kelly :)
