Hubbard Street concludes its virtual season with this world premiere of a piece choreographed and directed by former company member Jie-Hung Connie Shiau, featuring original music and composition by Jerome Begin and videography and editing by Kevin Michael Briggs. Shiau found the seeds of this work (which is performed by the full HSDC company) in witnessing the establishment of "reeducation camps" for Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other traditionally Muslim minority groups in China’s Xinjiang Autonomous Zone. Shiau's aim with the piece is to raise awareness of this humanitarian crisis. A discussion follows the premiere.

Price: Free, but registration required (registration opens 6/11)
