Odyssey to meet with Asian-American Community Leaders

In an effort to create an on camera experience for the KSL audience, Odyssey Dance Theatre’s dancers did a :05 second improvised tease on Wednesday morning with women in costume showcasing a Chinese number in their upcoming holiday production, ReduxNut-Cracker at Kingsbury Hall. This short segment is not part of the actual choreographed production, and we sincerely regret any hurt this segment caused and did not intend to offend.

Representatives of the Asian-American community in Utah have requested a meeting with Odyssey, and we are in the process of confirming. We are interested and anxious to hear the knowledge of those involved on misinformed cultural stereotypes and to adapt our works to accommodate current sensibilities.
