Screen Asia film screening: Mao's Last Dancer
At the time of its release, the San Francisco Chronicle praised that Mao's Last Dancer was as "fluent and polished as its subject matter." The acclaimed biopic follows the inspiring experiences of former Houston Ballet principal dancer Li Cunxin. After five years and numerous awards, the film continues to resonate with audiences around the world.
Li, who now serves as artistic director for Queensland Ballet, will join Nancy Wozny (Arts + Culture Texas) and Asia Society Texas Center board chairman Charles Foster for a conversation immediately following the screening.
Asia Society Texas Center presents this program in collaboration with Dance Salad Festival.
