“Don’t wait to learn and don’t wait to ask. Whatever your language is, spoken or unspoken, it can bring you closer to who you are.” – Jasmine Chen
Prepare to be swept away by the world premiere of Jade Circle, a beautiful multidisciplinary performance by Jasmine Chen. Through powerful music, captivating movement, and poignant storytelling in Mandarin and English, Jasmine finds her place within the legacy of her matriarchs. Yearning to reconnect with her late grandmother, she embarks on a transformative journey to relearn Mandarin and unearths lost stories of her grandmother’s past through intimate interviews with her mother. This show is accessible to individuals who can understand only Mandarin, English, or both. As part of the show, subtitled text will be projected for audiences.
This beautiful story will inspire you to rediscover and reclaim your mother tongue. Jade Circle is an experience not to be missed. Secure your tickets for this breathtaking performance.
A talkback is an opportunity for the audience to “talk back” or engage in a conversation with the artist in response to the performance.
