As performing art forms of Europe like opera and ballet shift to serving diverse communities, how do they continue to uphold tradition and artistic legacy without resorting to canceling works with outdated racial depictions that don’t ring true with audiences today? Join author, choreographer, and advocate Phil Chan for a practical discussion on what a shift from a Eurocentric to a multiracial artforms needs to look like to survive in the 21st century.
