The Butterfly's Dream at State Theatre in New Brunswick NJ

Saturday, June 25, 2022 - 7:00PM to 9:00PM EST

Join Desi Rainbow Parents and Allies and coLAB Arts in celebrating pride month and honoring the Desi Rainbow community with this new dance piece.
 
' The Butterfly's Dream ' is an interdisciplinary live performance devised by Kathak dancer and tabla player Jin Won and director Yong-Suk Yoo of Korean origin. Inspired by the motif of the transformative process of the cocoon into a butterfly, the performance suggests a personal rite of passage through self-actualization and enlightenment by integrating Kathak dance, sound collage, and theatrical storytelling with a flavor of Korean shamanism aesthetics.
 
The event will feature a live dance performance followed by an expert panel discussion on the intersections of API and LGBTQ advocacy in the State of NJ. Grant funding has been provided by the Middlesex County Board of County Commissioners through a grant award from the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund.
