LNY2012: Year of the Dragon is scheduled for February 18, 2012! Mark your Calendars!
The Lunar New Year Show is one of Duke’s premiere cultural exhibitions, the most diverse display of East Asian heritage on campus, and the Asian Students Association’s biggest undertaking of the year. The annual event has its roots in East Asian cultures, which historically operated under a lunar-based calendar and still hold elaborate celebrations and festivals to bring in the New Year.
ASA’s LNY reflects this rich tradition with a communal Asian dinner and a showcase of music and dance acts prominently featuring student talent from around Duke. The dinner takes place in the Great Hall, fully catered by various Asian restaurants from around the Triangle area to give attendees a culturally unique dining experience. Performances range from independent acts, with Martial Arts, diabolo, piano and more in last year’s show, to established student groups, such as Duke Chinese Dance Troupe, Defining Movement, Sabrosura and Stop Motion.
