The Larger Conversation: Synergy of Dance in Our Lives
Just like language, the field of dance has evolved through innovation and lived experiences. Dance is about a feeling, a connection to something bigger, spiritual, or personal. Shen Wei’s approach focuses on a transference of energy throughout the body that involves thoughtful collaboration and intentionality. Hear experts in the field discuss the individual and collective impact of dance.
Like Shen Wei’s paintings that explore both traditional Chinese and contemporary art practices, the lives of Asian-Americans blend Eastern and Western values, traditions, and cultural experiences.
During this conversation, hear from Asian-Americans in Boston discuss how they each approach navigating life in the United States in 2021, while maintaining a connection to their traditional cultural heritage, and the challenges or dissonance that they experience as a result.
