Carry a Dream with You

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Carry a Dream with You is an outdoor contemporary dance performance created by choreographer Jiemin Yang in collaboration with performing dancers. This work is inspired by the stories of people who have relocated to New York City to pursue their dreams, goals, and visions. It hopes to inspire the local community members to regain their hopes in their life after many obstacles since the pandemic started.

Audience members are invited to travel along with the dancers within the Queens Botanical Garden to experience their engaging and powerful performance accompanied by live music which we hope will touch everyone’s heart.
