ASIAN AMERICA: 

THE

FUTURE

IS

NOW

Photos by Jennelle Fong

Asians in America stand inside a future that has already arrived. 

Through dance, movement, and meditation, using sound, poetry, spiritual tools, and healing foods, we invite you to join us for an evening where we stand in our collective power and honor the future that lives inside of each of us. 

Together, we are weaving the songs of our mothers and motherlands.
We are singing the stories of migration that live in our bodies.
We are looking within to fully actualize these present moments.
We are seeking freedom from past.
We are claiming our seats of power for the transformational changes we’re calling in.

Rooted Love

Rooted Love: A Night of Cultural Resistance Through Music, Visual and Performance Art 

 

A sensory-inspired night of visual, musical and oral storytelling. Presented by Jinjabrew in collaboration with local artists and cultural workers, this performance exists in the form of original music, poetry, live painting and meditative ceremony. These works of art offer a deep and reverent contemplation on the relationship between our identities, our memories, our sense of belonging, and the ancestral wounds we inherit. By making peace with our pain and acknowledging the diverging aspects of our cultural traditions, this journey is dedicated to tuning in with the vibration of love and healing the bondages that will allow us to renew and reclaim the roots of our being.

 

Participating artists include: Kyoko-Jinjabrew, Robben Muñoz, Diana Daeun Choung, Rosalee Bernabe, Charlotte Nguyen, Jenevieve Ting, Olufemi O. Taiwo, Travis Walker, Mr. Song, Tobi Adebajo (UK) and XANA (UK).
