About The Show:
Dive into an enchanting evening with AAPI HEROES, where we follow our young explorer, Kai, on a captivating journey across time. This vibrant performance, rich in dance and storytelling, inspired by iconic Asian Figures such as Anna May Wong, Hollywood’s first Chinese American star, and Bruce Lee, a legend in martial arts and philosophy. It also brings to life the mythic NuWa, Goddess of Creation, and the global K-pop phenomenon. The performance invites you on a journey filled with stories that illuminate the strength and resilience inherent in the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

Join for an evening that not only entertains but also pays homage and celebrates the vibrant legacy of Asian American history!
