Come spend an evening with Phil Chan from “Final Bow for Yellowface”
“The Opposite of Cancel Culture”
What do we do with work that has artistic merit but contains racially problematic material? Don’t cancel it! But…how do we continue to perform it? Join “Final Bow for Yellowface” co-founder Phil Chan as he shares his creative practice of reimagining important European works like “Madama Butterfly” and “La Bayadere” for a multiracial audience, and expand your own toolbox and vocabulary when presenting depictions of non-European cultures on stage.
Phil Chan is a co-founder of Final Bow for Yellowface, and author of Final Bow for Yellowface: Dancing between Intention and Impact, and the President of the Gold Standard Arts Foundation. He is a graduate of Carleton College and an alumnus of the Ailey School. He has held fellowships with NYU, the Manhattan School of Music, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and is currently a fellow at Harvard University, Drexel University, and the Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art in Paris.

He served multiple years on the National Endowment for the Arts dance panel and the Jadin Wong Award panel presented by the Asian American Arts Alliance. His latest choreography project, the “Ballet des Porcelaines,” premiered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in December 2021 and will tour throughout 2022.
