Your mind is soon to be blown if you are lucky enough to be in the Southern California area, courtesy of the East West Players. This Saturday, August 14th, they kick off their 45th season with One Night Only: Hip Hop & Hot, a benefit performance featuring some of Southern California's hottest dance crews and most amazing performers. You really don't want to miss this one!
The event will take place at the David Henry Hwang Theater located at the Union Center for the Arts. The night is jam packed with amazing and talented individuals showcasing what they do best, from fly dance crews like Velvet Nation, and powerful singers like Sue jin, to a sick beatbox crew like Fresh Beats Inc. All of these performers really embody the message behind the event, that Asian Americans are a creative force to be reckoned with!
Producing artistic director Tim Dang puts it best:
Over the years, East West Players has showcased some of the best Asian American acting and musical theatre talent. Our One Night Only fundraiser gives us the opportunity to highlight Asian American talent ranging from hip hop dance crews to breakdancers. We want to show that Asian Americans can dance and breakdown the stereotypes. These performances will match the level of entertainment that EWP is known for and will leave you wanting more.
