Dance Drama

As communities across the nation and world struggled to adjust to the pandemic, some also had the added challenge of facing anti-Asian racism. In response, Asian Media Access debuted their dance drama “Resonance” in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The drama’s narrative mirrored the composer’s experience over the course of the pandemic, using dances and traditional body movements to illustrate the complex journey through learning about the existence of COVID-19, recognizing the disaster, feeling angry and frustrated, learning to adapt, and ultimately finding appreciation and hope.
