Beneath The Surface

  • YMCA - Chinatown Branch 855 Sacramento Street San Francisco, CA, 94108 United States (map)

AIISF is proud to sponsor Lenora Lee Dance’s world premiere of “Beneath The Surface”, an underwater, multimedia experience. It is a meditation on forgiveness, reconciliation, and redemption, speaking to the power of individuals to transcend.

Three of Lenora Lee's grandparents were detained and processed at the Angel Island Immigration Station. Lenora is deeply grateful to have learned about their journeys and history, in knowing it is part of the rich history of the Chinese and their contributions in this country. Lenora's pivotal immersive performance piece "Within These Walls" (2017) made its debut at the Immigration Station in September 2017. She is planning for its re-staging, along with a sequel, for May 2019.

Go here for ticket information. There will be six performances of this piece.
