Celebrate the Year of the Rooster with a performance by Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College on Jan. 22.
The prestigious company will perform an all-new celebration of Chinese arts commemorating the Year of the Rooster, cousin to the mythical Phoenix, whose song awakens the world each morning and whose confidence and loyalty is well regarded. Delightful red lions, golden dragons, and white peacocks frolic and play to the exotic sounds of traditional instruments, while graceful dancers and astounding acrobats showcase the rich culture of one of Brooklyn’s most vibrant communities.
