Border of Womanhood is an intimate reflection of a dreamy, young girl’s adolescence in Taiwan, her evolution as a woman and her decision to break out and move to New York City. The struggles between traditional beliefs, images and the limitless possibilities that open up after crossing boundaries into a new world are filtered through dance, classic Chinese Poetry, Peking Opera and pop music. Written and choreographed by Kuang-Yu Fong, this production was originally created in 2001 for the H.T. Chen Dance Company’s Ear to the Ground Festival, with a grant from the Jerome Foundation.
