Come to the “Winter Dragon of Chinatown Ball” as part of the Bridge for Inclusion, to advocate for underserved communities and promote the Dr. Rolland and Kathryn Lowe Community Bridge as an inviting and inclusive space for everyone through art.
Pre-Ball Performances by Sandy Guo, Portsmouth Square Dance Club, and LionDanceMe at 6pm.
From the artists:
Winter is COMING and a NEW Dragon has already been born in the CHILLY waters of San Francisco Bay. This mystifying hybrid can thrive ANYWHERE. From the darkest depths of the seven seas to the frosted skies of the winter, this CAPTIVATING jewel ALWAYS brings the FIRE. Recently, it’s been spotted soaring through the starlit fog of the cold San Francisco night. Chinatown welcomes the Winter Dragon home, praying for its illumination and protection in a quickly darkening world. One question remains: where IS the Winter Dragon to SLAY the icy cold future ahead?
