‘Flight’ soars at Kumble Theater at LIU for the Lunar New Year

Spread your wings and fly over to Kumble Theater at Long Island University on Jan. 27 and 28 to enjoy “Flight.”

This year, Lunar New Year begins on Jan. 28. The holiday is celebrated by Asian communities the world over. Enjoy an exciting new kind of performance to mark this celebratory time. “Flight” is an Afro-Asian fusion dance performance by Peggy Choy Dance, a New York-based company.

The production is inspired by the 12th-century Persian poet Attar’s poem “Conference of the Birds,” an allegorical tale of the world’s birds embarking on a dangerous journey in search of the Wondrous Rose of Love.

“Flight” Jan. 27 and 28, 7:30 pm. Tickets range $10 to $12.
