About this Event

Bring the whole family to marvel at Boston’s Gund Kwok, the only all-women lion dance troupe in the US. Using strong but light materials like papier-mâché and bamboo, the detailed costumes with beautifully choreographed movements empower Asian women to show their creativity, power, and strength through centuries-old Lion Dances and dynamic drumming!

The Celebrate! series, appropriate for family audiences and children ages 5 and up, highlights America’s rich cultural diversity through the arts. This program is tied directly to President and Mrs. Kennedy's concern for and support of the arts and culture in a democratic society. Thanks to generous support from the Martin Richard Foundation and the Mass Cultural Council all performances are free.
