Weaving personal stories through poetry, music, comedy and video, D’Lo also presents a parade of characters, real and imaginary. These diverse, flawed characters come to share their stories — exploring contradictions of existing in America where one’s immigrant traditions and culture are constantly challenged; battling against ignorance, even in friendships and relationships; and finally, reflecting stories of love that show D’Lo’s belief that “you can’t call yourself a revolutionary if you have a problem being nice.”
