Diaspora: A Mother’s Elegy
Hudson Ballet Theatre's five act ballet follows the true story of a Hmong refugee and her internal family challenges set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and immigration to the United States. In partnership with the Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT), the oldest non-profit organization supporting Hmong artists in Minnesota, Diaspora brings together three generations of Hmong American women experiences through a journey of self discovery, sacrifice, and redemption. Choreographed to a score by Antonin Dvorak, HBT Co-Director and Minnesota native Ho-Shia Thao uses the classical language of ballet to narrate a new voice for American dance while highlighting universal challenges of American immigrants as they redefine their ideals of self, family, and community.
