YEAR OF THE TIGER Performance Series

Celebrate the cultural power that flows through AAPI communities across the Asian diaspora in ways that vocalize both struggles and joys. Visions/Voices features live outdoor performances by Boston-area artists and performers who draw upon a wide range of artistic styles, cultural traditions, and languages from AAPI communities and beyond. Each event activates artist Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong’s YEAR OF THE TIGER installation in Mary Soo Hoo Park. 

Live music, movement, spoken word, and even an audio play fill the park in Chinatown this summer. Visions/Voices is a summer 2022 outdoor performance series produced in collaboration with Pao Arts Center and Curator Leslie Condon.
