Atlanta Chinese Dance Company's 'We Belong Here: Rising Against Asian Hate' opens at Gas South Theater
According to the FBI, over 270 anti-Asian incidents were reported across the U.S. in 2020. Many believe this was due to discriminatory rhetoric spread when the COVID-19 pandemic began.
In response to this rise in hate crimes, the Atlanta Chinese Dance Company created the original production, “We Belong Here: Rising Against Asian Hate.” In this interview, “City Lights” producer Summer Evans spoke with Kerry Lee, Atlanta Chinese Dance Company’s co-artistic director and choreographer, about the production.
“We Belong Here: Rising Against Asian Hate” dance performances will be held on April 15 and 16 at Gas South Theater. More information is available here.
