$20, $15; Students: $10, $7

Yin Mei is a child of China's Cultural Revolution period and with this performance she uncovers her feelings and her own haunting experiences during the political hysteria of that time. Her luminous quartet of dancers moves in and out of focus; mysterious, dreamlike moments are terrifyingly interrupted; visions appear and dissolve evoking recurring dreams and memories. Through an extraordinary collaboration with lighting designer Ling Xiao and visual and sound designer Chris Salter, Yin Mei poetically conjures the impact of memory, history, and cultural traditions on the journey of life. Educational Outreach: February 23 Master classes at Mt. Holyoke College and in other locations. Supported in part by the Five College Dance Department
