Hudson County Community College Continues NJPAC Partnership with Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company’s Lunar New Year Celebration Event

JERSEY CITY, N.J. / February 6, 2018 – Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Department of Cultural Affairs continues its year-long partnership with New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) with a very special event.

The College invites the entire community to experience Asian culture and celebrate the Lunar New Year with a talk and demonstration presented by artist Nai-Ni Chen, featuring colorful costumes, twirling ribbons, and dancing dragons in a dazzling explosion of energy and motion.

The event will take place on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Benjamin J. Dineen, III & Dennis C. Hull Gallery on the 6th Floor at 71 Sip Ave., Jersey City.

This, along with the programming of the HCCC-NJPAC partnership, is open to the entire Hudson County community with no charge for

admission.

An artist whose work defies categorization, Nai-Ni Chen is continually working on new ideas from worldwide influences.

The dances of Nai-Ni Chen fuse the dynamic freedom of American modern dance with the grace and splendor of Asian art. Her mesmerizing and dramatic contemporary choreography has gained recognition among domestic and international presenters and festivals.

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company’s productions take the audience beyond cultural boundaries to where tradition meets innovation and freedom arises from discipline.

The Company has mounted twenty national tours and seven tours abroad, and was recently honored with a distinctive grant award from both the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities and the Department of State to represent the United States in a seven-city tour arranged by the Tamaulipas International Arts Festival in Mexico.

Nai-Ni Chen dance productions have been presented in prestigious concert halls, such as the Joyce Theater in New York, Ordway Center in Minnesota, and the Cerritos Center in California. Internationally, Ms. Chen’s work was featured at the Silesian International Contemporary Dance Festival and the Konfrontations International Dance Festival – both in Poland – and the Chang Mu International Arts Festival in Korea and China International Dance Festival.

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company event on February 13th is part of HCCC Department of Cultural Affairs’ “Twilight Tuesday” series featuring artist receptions, demonstrations, faculty mixers, author readings, and workshops. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Hoboken Property Owners Invited to Request Street Tree Planting

In preparation for the spring 2018 tree planting, the City of Hoboken’s Shade Tree Commission is seeking property owners who would like a tree planted in the sidewalk adjacent to their building and who will agree to care for and water the tree. Qualifying property owners can have a street tree planted in exchange for a suggested $100 contribution towards planting costs and a pledge to keep the tree well-watered.

The City has planted hundreds of street trees through the program in the last few years.

Property owners who would like a tree planted in a sidewalk tree pit in front of their home should complete the online request form at https://hoboken.seamlessdocs.com/f/shadetree. Requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to available funding.

Each location requested will be surveyed by a professional from the Department of Environmental Services to ensure there are no conflicts with the surrounding infrastructure and that the site is a suitable one for a tree to grow and thrive.

Requests can be made for existing empty tree pits as well as paved sidewalk locations. If a tree pit does not exist, one will be opened. Trees will not be planted on private property; only in sidewalk tree pits.

Sent by City of Hoboken, NJ 94 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030
