Caili Quan, a ballet dancer from Guam, now based in the United States, choreographs her love letter as a tribute to home. As Caili puts it, “I always wanted to create a piece that is a tribute to home. During the process, Love letter evolved into a reflection not only of Guam but also of Philadelphia. It is a love letter to the people and culture of the island that defined my spirit, and to the city that nurtured my art.”
