In association with Asian Improv aRts, CHSA is proud to co-sponsor Lenora Lee’s interdisciplinary work “Passages: For Lee Ping To” on September 24-26, 2010 at Dance Mission Theater, 3316–24th St (at Mission St), San Francisco, CA 94110.
“Passages,” is an interdisciplinary collaborative work between choreographer/dancer Lenora Lee, media designer Olivia Ting, composer/sound designer Francis Wong, lighting designer Patty-Ann Farrell, and dancers Marina Fukushima and Kevin Ho.
It is in homage to Lee’s grandmother on her mother’s side, Lee Ping To, who immigrated through the Angel Island Immigration Station in 1940, the year that the Station was closed.
2010 is the Centennial of the opening of Angel Island Immigration Station. In service between 1910 and 1940, the Station served as a detention center for immigrants to the US from China , Japan , Russia among others, representing a shared experience within our diverse California society.
“Passages: For Lee Ping To” is also co-sponsored by the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation.
