10,000 Dreams: Virtual Choreography Festival Will Highlight Asians in Dance

10,000 Dreams: Virtual Choreography Festival will highlight Asians in dance. The festival is being held by Final Bow for Yellowface, an organization dedicated to eliminating offensive Asian stereotypes in dance.

The Opening Keynote will be presented in partnership with the New York Public Library Chatham Square Branch and the Library for the Performing Arts, and will be streamed on Monday May 3 at 6pm EST. Panelists will include Rohan Bhargava, Jessica Chen, Edwaard Liang, and Brinda Guha, and will be moderated by Final Bow's Phil Chan.

The festival has also partnered with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago to present Unboxed, a tradition re-imagined, that invited Yin Yue (May 10), Edwaard Liang (May 17), and Peter Chu (May 24), to create new dances to the Nutcracker's iconic "Tea" divertissement. Click HERE to learn more!
