10,000 Dreams: A Celebration of Asian Choreography
A blossoming initiative to recognize and elevate Asian creatives working in ballet, this program of Asian and Asian American choreography—co-curated by Final Bow for Yellowface’s Phil Chan—features The Washington Ballet, BalletMet, and Oakland Ballet Company. These performances celebrate the 75th anniversary of Singaporean choreographer Choo San Goh (1948-1987) who brought The Washington Ballet international acclaim, plus works by BalletMet’s Edwaard Liang—the first Asian Artistic Director for a major American ballet company, Phil Chan and Caili Quan for Oakland Ballet Company, and the Minnesota debut of choreographer Brett Ishida.
