Asian Improv aRts Midwest and Links Hall co-present: Bridge Dance Festival 2019

About this Event

Bridge Dance Festival returns!

Identity, aesthetics, and expression. Bridge Dance Festival Curator Fujima Yoshinojo (Rika Lin) gathers a spectrum of dancers who encompass a connection to their Asian heritage.

The individual is in a continuous flux. The fluid, dynamic state of being that is shaped by variable experiences within the environment is surrounded by culture and aesthetics. This is presented in a visible, observable release and transference known as “dance." The Bridge...is the individual.

The artists of the 2019 Bridge Dance Festival include Alexander Hayashi w/Takashi Shallow, Ayako Kato, Ayaka Nakama, and Mitsu Salmon w/ ryotaro.

The first Bridge Dance Festival (Spring 2018) was a culmination of four years of Japanese-focused programming at Links Hall, including the National Performance Network Asian Exchange, Beyond the Box, and Links to Japan.

Through the Bridge Dance Festival, we hope to demonstrate a fierce love of and respect for international cultural exchange and connection. In the face of rising US nationalism and the aggressive political reality we find ourselves in, we want to make a home for global connections that are inspired and supported by mutual respect for both cultural similarities and differences.
