Exploring broad themes of immigration, displacement, and the concept of home, Asian Arts Initiative's 2010 Artists Exchange convenes a cadre of Asian America's most talented and provocative performers – some classic, some cutting edge, all unforgettable.

It starts with three nights of not-to-miss showcases of solo work. Then, following a week of intensive collaboration, our star-studded collective of artists from around the country debut a new ensemble work-in-progress that invokes their creativity to speak to common community concerns.

Night #1 (Thursday, March 25) will feature Makoto Hirano and Kristina Wong.
Night #2 (Friday, March 26) will feature Regie Cabico, Robert Karimi, and Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai.
Night #3 (Saturday, March 27) will feature Dan Kwong, Anula Shetty, and Catzie Vilayphonh.
Night #4 (Saturday, April 3) will feature the entire Artists Exchange ensemble!
