Artist’s Statement: During this time with the pandemic, resentment and hatred grows stronger towards people of Asian descent. In these troubling and unfortunate times, we need to stand firm and together. Through this performance we profess our pride in our heritage hoping that others can see beauty in our dance, rather than a disease. We are not the virus, hatred is.
