Queens residents can enjoy a dynamic modern dance display from some of the country’s leading dance artists in Flushing this weekend.
Three Taiwanese-American dance companies — Nai-Ni Chen, Kun-Yang Lin and PeiJu Chien-Pott — will perform at Flushing Town Hall on Sunday, March 5. Titled “CrossCurrent IV,” the hour-long concert will feature a unique performance by each of the spirited dance groups. Performances will deal with ideas of creation, destruction, identity, the immigrant experience and more.
Attendees are also invited to stay after the performance for a panel discussion with the artists.
The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company put on a preview performance at a Flushing Town Hall press conference in January announcing the center’s new 2017 programming.
“We are excited to see the stardom-like lineup of Nai-Ni, Kun-Yang and PeiJu, who are unquestionably among the leading forces of the modern dance field in New York and across the country,” said Ellen Kodadek, executive and artistic director of Flushing Town Hall. “We are especially delighted to witness this combination because it represents the quality and passion our immigrant artists can bring to our community.”
The performance will take place at Flushing Town Hall, located at 137-35 Northern Blvd., at 1 p.m. Tickets are $16 for non-members, $10 for members and students and free for teenagers ages 13 through 19 and can be purchased online or by phone at 718-463-7700, ext. 220.
The event was organized in collaboration with the Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York. Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts, located at historic Flushing Town Hall, is a not-for-profit organization that has presented multi-disciplinary global arts and programming for the community since 1979.
