Interdisciplinary dance works giving artistic voice to Asian Americans

10/17 Performance! Michishirube: At the crossroads  

Michishirube: At the crossroads  

Healing through art, stories, and music


Sunday, October 17
Performances at 11 am & 2 pm
Asian Art Museum

We pause at the crossroads — after more than a year of COVID, climate change, and racial reckoning, we have choices to make about how we move forward. Join us in community to find a path toward healing through interactive art making, storytelling, and music. All day, you’ll be able to participate in paper lantern, and Japanese boat model demonstrations and activities. At 11 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. a 90-minute performance featuring Asian artists living in diaspora will begin outside with taiko drumming and then wend its way into the museum for more, including spoken word, koto music, and lantern-lighting that will help us illuminate the path toward a more empowered future.
