Phil Chan is co-founder of Final Bow for Yellowface, a movement for change in the ballet community of stereotypes of Asians. From The Nutcracker to Crazy Rich Asians, Chan approaches issues of race and representation by exploring “cultural appropriation” through the lens of dance history—where he finds many parallels to fashion and costuming.
