Event Description

Nai-Ni Chen to Perform
A Quest for Freedom at NextMove Dance Festival
April 19-22, 2018

In this 2018 Women's History Month of March, NJPAC will premiere Nai-Ni Chen's latest collaboration with the world renowned Ahn Trio in a new, groundbreaking dance production, A Quest for Freedom. A program that highlights the hope and quest for freedom in every aspects of the artist's life and only highlighted by the current societal, national, international and historical debate around immigration. Following the NJPAC premiere, the new work will premiere at Philadelphia's NextMove Dance Festival from Fri-Sun, April 19, 20, 21, 22, 2018 at the Prince Theatre.

 

Originally inspired by Ahn Trio's adaptation of David Bowie's Space Oddity and the their performance of the Trio's version of Purple Rain by Prince on Ellis Island's Great Hall of Immigration, Nai-Ni Chen continued to work with the Trio throughout 2017 to find their common vision, exploring their common roots as Asian American immigrants, and as women artists developing innovative work in America.  Their collaboration is enhanced by the work of visual artist Jayathi Moorthy, who brings a contemporary, visual artist perspective to the project.
