Asian Wave

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

Sunday July 21st, 7pm

Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film, Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY

In collaboration with Powerhouse Theater at Vassar College and New York Stage and Film, our July salon is proudly presented a wave of talented Asian and Asian-American theatre artists who discussed the challenges and opportunities they are facing in our current theatre environment.

In the most recent report by Asian American Performers Action Coalition (AAPAC) showed that “only 13.2% of all plays produced in New York City were written by minority playwrights in the 2016-17 season. Asian American playwrights were at 1.5% in the non-profit and 0% produced on Broadway for the 2016-2017 season. The 10-year industry average for the hiring of Asian Americans stands at 3.7%.”

Panelists: Jody Doo (https://www.jodydoo.com/), Jessica Huang (https://www.jessica-huang.com/), Dennis Li (https://www.dennisyuehyehli.com/), Zhu Yi (https://www.zhuyizhuyi.com/)
