Overview
First Voice creates and produces original, multi-disciplinary work fusing Asian performing arts traditions with indigenous American art forms such as jazz, spoken word, and storytelling. Reaching 20,000 audience members annually through its local and national tour performances, First Voice also performs and teaches at public schools, universities, and other institutions and has produced numerous spoken word and jazz recordings. Renewed support would enable the organization to develop tours of existing work, offer local performances from their repertory, and create new works, including a site-specific piece in San Francisco’s Japantown.
