H.T. Chen & Dancers (www.chendancecenter.org) is an innovative modern dance company which has created a uniquely Asian-American expression by embodying its cultural heritage. Infusing Western modern dance with the strength and beauty of Asian aesthetics, the Company's dynamic style has enchanted audiences across the United States, Europe and Asia since its inception in 1978.

SOUTH OF GOLD MOUNTAIN is is an interpretation based on the images and oral histories of the Chinese that settled in the southern states prior to WWII. Lesser known were the Chinese who came to the southern states to work on plantations, widen the Augusta Canal, or build the railroads. Starting from the diaspora that led the Chinese to the South, this piece is a collective journey of these individuals. Through the power of faith, tradition, work ethic, as well as the bonds to other Chinese families in the South, these individuals experienced, endured, and overcame their hardships. South of Gold Mountain pays tribute to the livelihoods of Chinese grocers, laundries, restaurants, and those who persevered to quietly make a difference in the communities they lived in.
