A Dance/Theater Commission

J CHEN PROJECT in the International Human Rights Art Festival next week at The Wild Project on THURS, NOV 15 at 8:30pm and SUN, NOV 18 at 9pm.

Our new dance/theater work "La Bestia: Sweet Mother" will be featured alongside works from Thomas Tsai, Garrett Parker and Christopher Nuñez.

La Bestia: Sweet Mother is a story of a single immigrant girl, making her way from Honduras through Mexico and into the U.S. on top of the La Bestia freight train. This tale is told as myth, through poetry and dance.

A story too close to our own...
