Meet and Greet with Artist Yin Mei
Saturday, Jan 18 | 11:00-12:00pm | Benfer Courtyard
Members who participate in any Friends group (Friends of Art of Our Time, Friends of the Library, Friends of Asian Art, and Friends of the Ringling Legacy) are invited to attend a meet and greet with artist Yin Mei, who is onsite for her two evening performances of Peony Dreams: On the Other Side of Sleep. Light brunch fare will be provided.
Created and choreographed by Yin Mei, an artist of the Chinese diaspora who has been part of the New York dance scene since the 1990’s, this new dance theater piece for five dancers melds themes from the iconic Chinese literary work The Peony Pavilion and Yin Mei’s own life experience as a teenage government dancer during the Chinese Revolution. Highly visual and referencing a dense collection of letters she wrote to her family over two decades, the work is a dance painting that occupies the space between truth and dreams.
This event is by invitation only.
