Seattle Art Museum says
Join us on March 29 for Asia Performs: RISE Collaborative at the Asian Art Museum.

Update: Tickets are sold out.

Musicians and dancers from Xinjiang in Western China with U.S.-based performers come together in a new collaborative work conceptualized by visual artist Lisa Ross. The ensemble includes emerging choreographer Indah Walsh; musician Perhat Khaliq, Uyghur rock star who has risen to fame in the past year, and finalist on “The Voice of China” on Chinese television; and Paris-based Uyghur dancer, filmmaker and ethnomusicologist Mukaddas Mijit.

This ensemble will come together for a residency at the Watermill Center in March 2016 to develop a live performance in dialogue with the video RISE, created by Ross after traveling to the Xinjiang region of China over the course of ten years.

RISE Collaborative is presented in partnership with the University of Washington’s Ellison Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia.
