In 1992, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Undesirable Elements and his 30th anniversary as an independent artist, Ping Chong asked writer/director Talvin Wilks to collaborate on making a UE production with memorable participants from past UE performances. To complete the circle, Ping himself decided to join the cast for the first time. The anniversary production, originally titled UE 92/02, then became a touring version. The anniversary production has been presented, with differing casts, in Lille, France, Rome, Italy Colorado Springs, CO, Easton, PA, and New York City.
