Arriving from Washington D.C. just after opening the Kennedy Center’s season, Dana Tai Soon Burgess & Co. gives a rare FREE performance at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
The company will perform a selection of excerpts including “Tracings,” which explores the migration of Burgess’ grandmother from Korea to Hawai’i after the war and the lives of the plantation workers there. The company will also be presenting their latest work “Chino Latino,” which revisits Dana’s experience growing up in U.S. bilingual schools as well as his recent Fulbright research into the Asian diaspora in Latin America. Other excerpts will also include “Mandala,” inspired by the Gandhara region of Pakistan, a region of extreme importance to the historic Silk Road and one of the first East West points of intersecting cultures.
Please RSVP by Monday, November 5
Co-sponsored by: NYU’s Latino Studies Program and the Asian American Arts Alliance. With support by AKA (Also Known As).
