Berkeley Dance Project 2023: Within These Walls by Lenora Lee Dance

Zellerbach Playhouse at UC Berkeley

Within These Walls is an award-winning multimedia work that powerfully integrates contemporary dance with poetry, original music, and video projection. Inspired by the experiences of the estimated 170,000 Chinese immigrants who were processed or detained at the U.S. Immigration Station on Angel Island between 1910 and 1940, the work serves as a meditation on healing, resilience, and compassion.
Lenora Lee Dance created and premiered Within These Walls as a site-specific experience at the Immigration Station in 2017. The Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies is re-staging the work with a student cast for Berkeley Dance Project, the department’s annual dance concert.
