In collaboration with Greenway Conservancy, Pao Arts Center and Curator Leslie Anne Condon have curated this summer 2022 outdoor performance series which celebrates the cultural power that flows through AAPI communities across the Asian diaspora, in ways that vocalize both struggles and joys. Featuring live performances by Boston-area spoken artists and performers who draw upon a wide range of artistic styles, cultural traditions, and languages from AAPI communities and beyond, the event series activates artist Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong’s YEAR OF THE TIGER installation in Mary Soo Hoo Park. Through their words, dance, creative gestures, and songs, each artist brings greater visibility to our interconnected histories and current realities while offering more playful and empowering visions of our collective future.
New Narratives Series: Present and Future

Performances featuring: Tamiko Beyer, Micah Rose, Juk Sing, and The Flavor Continues
This event is the final of the VISIONS/VOICES: YEAR OF THE TIGER performance series. Through a partnership with the Greenway Conservancy, Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong has been commissioned to create an artwork celebrating the Year of the Tiger, as part of an annual project honoring the Chinese Zodiac on The Greenway. Her upcoming artwork, YEAR OF THE TIGER, is a community pavilion and a site-specific public artwork composed of vibrantly colored seating, podiums and sprawling floor motifs. As both stage and seating, YEAR OF THE TIGER creates a new, intergenerational hub to gather outdoors, perform or engage in public programs. Pao Arts Center is proud to partner with the Greenway to bring public events to Mary Soo Hoo Park.
