Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company with The Ahn Trio


Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company with The Ahn Trio  |  April 19-22

“A blossom of color, energy and motion, like endlessly proliferating forces of cosmic energy.”—The New York Times

 “…an adventurous evening of music-making and dancing…”—The Star-Ledger

A Quest for Freedom is inspired by the personal stories of Nai-Ni Chen, a Taiwanese choreographer-dancer who emigrated to America and the Ahn Trio, three sisters (Angella and twins Lucia and Maria) born in Seoul, Korea who moved to New York to train at The Juilliard School.  This captivating full-length multi-cultural production examines leaving one’s home, family and friends to embrace new dreams and freedom.  Nai-Ni Chen’s movement language draws from the flowing lines of Chinese calligraphy to the explosiveness of martial arts to the innovation of contemporary dance taking audiences beyond cultural boundaries.  The Ahn Trio is seamlessly integrated into the choreography creating a visually and aurally delightful experience.  The talented and glamorous musicians were named three of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.”  National Endowment for the Arts Fellow Nai-Ni Chen is the recipient of China’s coveted Golden Lotus Award.
