This season the Crossing Paths With… Salon Series will examine issues related to immigrant artists and the development of Asian arts and culture in America. The evening will open with a roundtable discussion that includes dancers Yung Yung Tsuai and Nuo An; toy piano musician Phyllis Chen; Eleanor Yung of Asian American Arts Center; and Kuang-Yu Fong and Stephen Kaplin of Chinese Theatre Works. Together they will talk about the difficulties in presenting performance arts for audiences of widely different cultural backgrounds and the ways artists adjust their work to accommodate them. The discussion will conclude with a performance that combines dance with shadow puppetry.
This event is a co-presentation between China Institute and Chinese Theatre Works, with additional funding provided by the Confucius Institute at China Institute.
