Bad Activist

“Bad Activist” is Mai Khôi’s multimedia autobiography - a stage show that combines original music, projections, archival footage, and storytelling to interrogate the relationship between art and activism. The story begins with Khôi’s upbringing in a country devastated by war, and follows her rise to fame as a pop star, her dangerous turn towards politics and activism, and finally her exile to the United States. “Bad Activist” features twelve of Khôi’s genre-busting songs, arranged for and performed live onstage by her five-piece band, Mai Khôi & the Dissidents.


“Bad Activist” received its full premiere at Joe’s Pub in February 2024, and over thirty workshop performances have been presented at venues ranging from festival stages to university classrooms.
