Houghton Library welcomes Georgina Pazcoguin and Phil Chan for an evening event about their efforts to question and reform outdated representations of Asians in ballet performances. The 'Final Bow for Yellowface' project they co-founded aims to make ballet more inclusive by eliminating offensive stereotypes of Asians and, more broadly, challenges organizations to forthrightly address the legacy of Orientalism in the performing arts. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Harvard University Professor Ju Yon Kim.
Please note that this talk will be recorded and made available online sometime after the event.
