Artlab | Almighty Dragons of the Four Seas

with Jason Phu

Summon the power of the Dragon Gods of the Four Seas. The four dragons, gods of the four seas in China are believed to influence the weather and water systems. Jason Phu will collaborate with our ArtLab children to create dragon masks that mirror his installation. The children will be able to parade this costume across the HOTA terrace in a noisy parade reminiscent of Chinese dragon dances.

This workshop will elaborate on the historical, cultural and religious aspects of the four dragons and how they might fit into contemporary issues of our changing climate.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts

This event is part of OUT LOUD Festival.
