This year, the A/PA Heritage Festival (www.capaonline.org) will be helping producing Gen 根, a contemporary dance theater piece exploring the lives of the women who were left behind when their husbands/companions left to work on the Transcontinental Railways in the US.
This will be done in conjunction with Corky Lee’s 145th Anniversary Transcontinental Railroad Legacy on May 10th, 2014 in Tremonton, Utah. Come join us in Utah–be there to reclaim a part of Asian American’s neglected and forgotten history.
We are $5,000 short and have little time to bring the production to the 440 Studios: 440 Lafayette Street, New York, NY. Prepurchase tickets for $39 or support our project here.
