Within These Walls is an award-winning multimedia work inspired by the experiences of the 170,000+ Chinese immigrants who were unjustly detained at the U.S. Immigration Station on Angel Island in the early 20th century. Featuring contemporary dance, poetry, original music, and video projection, this work is a meditation on healing, resilience, and compassion.
Following performances by Lenora Lee Dance on Angel Island in 2017 and 2019, the UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies is restaging Within These Walls with a cast of 14 students for its annual dance concert, Berkeley Dance Project.
