Panel Discussion/Talk

Asian American Choreography Tea House

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
6 – 7:30PM

Join Dance/NYC for the first event in the Redefining Practice series curated and moderated by Final Bow for Yellowface co-founder Phil Chan. This discussion, held with Asian and Asian American choreographers Annie Heath, Keerati Jinakunwiphat, Nai-Ni Chen, and Zhong-Jing Fang, unpacks the complex relationship between identity and how these artists choose to express their Asian cultural heritage. The event offers ‘redefined practices’ to respond to the barriers Asian American dance creatives face, both internally within their communities as well as externally through avenues for presentation.

As the landscape for dance as professional practice, living ritual and technical production continues to evolve, Redefining Practice explores how artists and institutions are adapting, unlearning and innovating new ways of being in creation––and the many phases that creation takes––to prioritise new learnings in racial justice, physical/emotional safety, and community care.
