About this event

***Due to the forecasted weather, this event was postponed from October 1 to rain dates and times: Saturday, October 8 with performances at 4pm & 5:30pm.***

Here We Root is an original outdoor contemporary dance inspired by Asian immigrants' stories, focusing on the Chinese diaspora in Flushing, New York. It invites audiences to experience, reflect on, and celebrate Asian immigrant identities and experiences. The piece combines movements with text, theatre, and an original score to bring the audience a unique performing arts experience within the beautiful setting in the Garden. The audience is encouraged to participate in an interactive moment during the performance. The performance is created by Queens-based choreographer Jiemin Yang in collaboration with the performers and collaborators.

The performances will take place in front of the Wedding Garden. Limited seating will be available with priority access for the elderly and individuals with disabilities. The audience is welcome to sit on the grass or stand around the performance space during the show.

Registration encouraged; walk-ins welcome upon availability.
