Appropriately, for a festival celebrating the arts of Asia, the work presented at Asia North 2022 is so vast and diverse that it’s impossible to adequately describe. But we thought, if we presented a small sliver, from the opening on April 8, it would enable readers to use their imaginations and do the math to extrapolate how much more of Asian North there is to see in the next weeks (ending May 28) at six Central Baltimore locations. You can find the details of where to go on the Asia North 2022 Facebook Event page, including information about all the organizations and artists responsible for this year’s Asia North, of whom we are proud to say — we are one, as we have been every year.
For spotlights on the various events and exhibitions taking place within Asia North 2022, the Asian Arts & Culture Center Facebook page is a wealth of information. AA & CC (of Towson University is the organization that first conceived of this festival; and (as always), this year’s Asia North was curated by Nerissa Paglinauan, Program Manager, of AA & CC.
So here’s our sliver, a gallery of the performers for the first one hour and ten minutes. Performances by Di Dim Sae Dance, Gyueun Kim, Mega Drum at Stillpointe Theatre. Then JHU Yong Han Lion Dance leads the audience to Motor House, where vocalist EN’B is on stage. Remember there are more than performers at Asia North 2022, the huge art exhibitions at Stillepoint Theatre and Motorhouse (and all the venues) are not represented in the following images.
