An empowering evening of music and dance, A Quest for Freedom is a collaboration between two of the most popular groups to perform on our series, Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company and the Ahn Trio. The Asian influence is not infused into the production through the props and costume but is instead exhibited by body motions and the stillness of the choreography. The athletic physicality of exquisite dancers, mesmerizing choreography of Nai-Ni Chen combined with the virtuosity of the Ahn Trio are integrated seamlessly throughout the program.

Nai-Ni Chen’s movement language draws from the flowing lines of Chinese calligraphy to the explosiveness of martial arts to the innovation of contemporary dance taking audiences beyond cultural boundaries.  The Ahn Trio perform on stage, effortlessly integrated with the dancers. The classically trained trio is committed to bringing new audiences to the arts were named three of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.”  National Endowment for the Arts Fellow Nai-Ni Chen is the recipient of China’s Golden Lotus Award.
