South of Gold Mountain choreographed by H.T. Chen & Dian Dong, draws from rich oral histories, treasured images, official and private documentation of Chinese settlers lured to America by the promise of gold and a prosperous life.  With the support of Chinese American community heritage museums and family associations in the US, three years of extensive research and in-depth interviews were conducted with immigrants and their descendants.

HT Chen & Dancers’ production memorializes the struggles of thousands of Chinese Americans and their legacy.  Blending a contemporary sound score, traditional Chinese music, and Deep South Blues, this vital dance-theater celebration of the first Chinese American settlements is an enlightening story of immigration, civil rights, and assimilation.
