Join us for performances, storytelling and art making as we celebrate Lunar New Year: Year of the Rabbit!

Take a tour through Yin Yu Tang, PEM’s 200-year old Chinese home, and check out programs with our featured collaborators Gund Kwok and Limin Mo.

Lunar New Year is celebrated in many Asian countries, including China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, Singapore and Malaysia.
