SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH, at 5pm, H.T. Chen & Dancers will perform two excerpts from their repertory: South of Gold Mountain draws from rich oral histories and treasured images of Chinese settlers. Transparent Hinges is an abstract journey of the Chinese in America, from the past to the  present, combining modern dance with movement from traditional movement arts.  Two post-performance conversations: The first will discuss the importance of the first Chinese American Heritage Week, recognition of Chinese laborers on the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad, and the impact of photographer Corky Lee’s work on the Asian American community
