Bridge Dance Festival 2023

Event Type
Event Description

The Bridge Dance Festival began in 2018 as the culmination of four years of Japanese-focused programming at Links Hall, including the National Performance Network Asian Exchange, Beyond the Box, and Links to Japan.

In 2019, producers Links Hall and Asian Improv aRts Midwest partnered with curator Yoshinojo Fujima (aka Rika Lin) to maintain the mission of international cultural exchange and connection in the face of rising US nationalism and its aggressive political reality. The importance of global connections is inspired and supported by mutual respect for both cultural similarities and differences.

Now in its fifth year, Bridge Dance continues to establish its role facilitating  AAPI Dancers from Chicago, Japan, and Taiwan will present their own new experimental pieces, exploring the expression of 'self'.
