SuperNova is a talent show parody that consists of seven characters in which the artist performs. The performers are Oreo, Fatimeh, and Coco and each of their acts examine issues of race and ethnic performance: Oreo performs a magic trick with a deck of white 'race cards", Fatimeh sings and performs a neo-orientalist ethnic identity, and Coco performs a dance as a liminal and hybrid subject. SuperNova examines the socio-political temporal, linguistic, and spacial factors that contribute to the formation of identity.
