NYC Season - preview for 'The Shadow and The Like'

You’re more likely to die while taking a selfie than by a shark attack (Conde Nast Traveler 2015). Considering this, J CHEN PROJECT is confronting the power of the "LIKE" and the weight of its shadow in the development of a new work called 'The Shadow and The Like.' Previewing at Dixon Place on September 29th thru October 1st, this bold new work dramatizes the nuanced social dynamics of young, fragile egos within the social media landscape.

Conceived and Directed by Jessica Chen
In Collaboration with Chien-Hao Chang of Chang Dance Theater (Taiwan), Kellen Stancil, and Special Guest

Thursday, September 29th @ 7:30pm
