CURRENT

Representation and 21 st Century Responsibilities in the Performing Arts

Asia Society Texas Center

March 31, 2017 | 7–8 pm

Via Asia Society:"If Houston is the most racially diverse cosmopolitan area in the country and its current demographics reflect the future composition of most of America’s cities, what is the arts community’s responsibility to reflect and own this 21st century reality? As part of an ongoing national discussion about race and representation recently reignited by Houston Grand Opera's January 2017 production of the opera Nixon in China, the panel will use the lens of Asian and Asian American identity to surface ideas of representation, voice, and creative interpretation."
