There is more dance to access in March. At BAAD! (Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance) the virtual events continue with “Birds of a Feather” curated by Rourou Ye. The collaboration follows the lives of four Asian female dance artists narrated through movement. “Their individual journeys culminate in a performance piece that explores the unique dimensionalities of their lives on love, intimacy, power, distance and humanity as they move into a Western society,” notes the release. Featured artists are Can Wang, Chieh Hsiung, Lai Yi Ohlsen, and Rourou Ye begin their journey with similar origins -- whether from China or Taiwan. This virtual event is free and happens on March 26.
