AUSTIN — Living on the Hyphen, a multi-cultural, contemporary collaboration of Austin-based artists of Asian-descent, will take place at the Rollins Studio Theatre, March 31-April 3, 2016, at the Long Center in Austin.
The show, produced by Lucky Chaos Theater and Productions and Austin Dance India, is directed by Austin’s Leng Wong, who describes the artistic vision this way: “Using the vehicle of humor and various performance art forms, I want to illuminate our commonality of being different.”
Based on the duality of the Asian-American experience, Living on the Hyphen touches on personal and social topics with humor and poignant revelation. Dancers will perform Bharata Natyam dance from India and the Chinese dragon dance. A full-size Chinese dragon puppet has traveled across the world for its Austin debut. For the non-hyphenated, non-Asian-American community, this performance “provides a window to living across the borders of identity.”
There are six shows to choose from over this one weekend. On Thursday and Friday, March 30-April 1, performances are at 8 p.m. On Saturday-Sunday, April 2-3, there are shows at 2 and 8. The Long Center is located at 701 W. Riverside Drive.
