Interdisciplinary dance works giving artistic voice to Asian Americans

Lenora Lee Dance, Call for Participants!

Lenora Lee Dance (LLD) is seeking participation for our new multimedia dance, “In the Skin of Her Hands,” a work dedicated to breast cancer survivors via a journey of healing, compassion, forgiveness and the unknown. LLD is looking for survivors and/or their loved ones who are open to sharing about experiences dealing with the disease, providing inspiration for the creation of the piece.

“In the Skin of Her Hands” will examine the effects of cancer on survivors, family, and community. So many women have been affected by breast cancer, including Lenora’s sister and mother. On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.

LLD will premiere “In the Skin of Her Hands” 11/1 – 11/3/19 at Dance Mission Theater as part of the theater’s WORD Series (Womxn Oracular Radical Dance). We hope to include a panel of experts in the field as part of the post-performance programming, and will look into ways to encourage early cancer screenings.

We invite your participation for a moment of sharing, honoring your stories and experiences, and reflecting collectively to inspire resiliency and acknowledge the gathered bravery, compassion, and endearing support of loved ones. Those interested please email Lenora at or call 415-913-8725 by Sunday, 7/28/19.

With much appreciation,
Lenora and Company
