波士頓華埠音樂劇今晚(8/19)7點


 

TONIGHT August 19, 2021 at 7PM ET, Company One Theatre and Pao Arts Center will host a virtual concert of the work-in-progress musical by Kit Yan & Melissa Li, the 2020-21 C1 PlayLab Pao Fellows.

This musical was developed with, and rooted in interviews with current residents of Boston’s Chinatown, their personal stories and pressing concerns of the neighborhood. The artistic team embedded itself into the Chinatown community, and explored the neighborhood’s history.

 

 

The virtual concert will be combined with a conversation between artists and community members, to share and celebrate our creative journey with Boston's vibrant Chinatown, whose stories underpin Li and Yan’s creative process. The event will address the unique and challenging conditions of creation against the backdrop of COVID-19 and the rise in anti-Asian racism, while exploring how community-centered, civically engaged arts practices can combat these forces.

Panelists:

  • Kit Yan & Melissa Li (2020-21 C1 PlayLab Pao Fellows)
  • Christina R. Chan (Community Producer, C1/Pao Chinatown Project; co-founder, Asian American Playwright Collective) 
  • Ben Hires (CEO, Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center)
  • Alison Yueming Qu (Associate Producer/Dramaturg, C1/Pao Chinatown Project; Executive Producer, CHUANG Stage) 
  • Moderator: Ju Yon Kim (C1 Board Member; Faculty, Scholar of Asian American Studies, Harvard University)

 

 


 

 

Kit Yan and Melissa Li's Work-In-Progress Boston Chinatown Musical is rooted in interviews and personal stories of Boston Chinatown residents—we heard from leaders, teachers, mothers, daughters, behind-the-scenes heroes who play crucial roles in this community.

 

How can community-oriented work inform the creation of art for social change? The project's Associate Producer and Dramaturg, Alison Yueming Qu, also talked with some of the leading voices in Chinatown to bring you their visions for the community and the city, and to give you a taste of how the Boston Chinatown Musical was created!
