Dear friends in New York City,
江峰 Jiang Feng is sincerely inviting all of you to their thesis performance to see his new work "Alt-Sex 異．性" with her wonderful collaborator Reginald Webber Jr. and Sihyu Chen (Mika).
In 2016, they came to the United States and it has been almost three years. During her time here, he learned tremendously and transformed as an artist and a being. Please join Feng to witness his growth and joy of finishing their M.F.A. degree at Pratt Performance + Performance Studies.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
