Asia After Dark: Chinese Martial Arts

DJ night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Hip-hop and kung fu have always been intertwined, from break dancers' adoption of martial arts moves to the Wu Tang Clan's obsession with kung fu (see the 1983 flick "Shaolin and Wu Tang"). The unlikely pairing will be the centerpiece of the Smithsonian's latest Asia After Dark event, where there will be projections of classic kung fu flicks scored with hip-hop tunes spun by the Hop Fu DJs. Of course, there will be plenty of other things to do: Create a 10-foot Buddha with a 3-D printer, learn tai chi, sample cocktails and food trucks, and tour the galleries with curators. Admission includes one alcoholic drink.
