WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

H.T. Chen and Dancers newest work Bian Dan, is a complex initiative into community involvement. Bian Dan is the Chinese word for the bamboo shoulder poles used throughout Asia to carry heavy loads. Here it is used to represent the cultural "burdens" immigrants often bear. Interviews with Asian families, collected images and feelings on identity have shaped this unique production's movement and overall composition.
