ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Treasure of our Chinatown: Wu Wei Za Chen五味杂陈 is a performing arts and social practice project that re-connects and supports the community that embraced Mei-Yin Ng when she first arrived in NYC. Site-specific, multi-disciplinary dance works performed in both public and intimate locations in Chinatown by the MEI-BE WHATever dance company in collaboration with local dancers are sourced from intimate story-telling exchanges and interviews between NYC Chinatown residents, facilitated by Ng & guests. This project aims to dissolve stereotypes, create bridges, and celebrate Chinese culture and histories.
