APICC is proud to co-present Minority Without a Model as part of the 24th annual United States of Asian America Festival: Forging Our Futures - SoMa & Chinatown.
Minority Without a Model is the debut solo dance theater work by Johnny Huy Nguyen. Interrogating the intersections of masculinity, desire, and becoming in his own body, Minority Without A Model is a somatic memoir and reckoning that seeks to conjure an East Asian male body beyond the white gaze. Weaving together dance and text, the work will take the witness on an intimate journey challenging the ways we love and find love.
