The primary mission of Facing East Dance & Music (FEDM) is to further the Asian voice in dance. FEDM presents work that explores the intricacies of being all at once Asian, American and Female. FEDM seeks to inform and embrace its audiences with thematic material that is both profound and accessible, utilizing the universality of motion and emotion. It is our goal to create work that fosters a deeper understanding and appreciation of issues significant to all audiences. The work is primarily expressed through Modern dance with an Asian aesthetic. Collaborations with artists in other disciplines such as music, visual design, and spoken word are vital to the depth and scope of the work and integral to FEDM's signature style. FEDM is also committed to community outreach, providing master classes, lecture demonstrations, and subsidized performances.
