It’s a festive gathering for the biggest holiday in the world: the 2022 Lunar New Year of the Water Tiger. Immerse your family in the sound of firecrackers, cymbals and drums that accompany the acrobatic lion dancers and be mesmerized by the vibrant colors from the motions of the endless floating lines of fabric, costumes and props that are created by the agile dancers and warriors. Choreographer Nai-Ni Chen has been making dances that bridge the richness of Asian artistic heritage and the dynamism of American dance for the past 30 years. In this celebration of the Year of the Water Tiger, she hopes that the steps her diverse Company takes raises awareness of the uniqueness of the Asian American perspective that is shaped by both cultures, and facilitates recognition of the Asian American contribution to the diversity of ideas in our society.
