- WHITE WAVE Dance Company 6:30pm
Extremely well crafted, visually stunning, emotionally rich work… Young Soon Kim makes generic modern-dance vocabulary serve a wide range of expressive functions… interesting and evocative—fresh.
On September 1st, WHITE WAVE Dance Company will be performing excerpts from “Eternal NOW”, which premiered at the BAM Fisher and “Here NOW So Long” and of “iyouuswe” a new choreography by Young Soon Kim in collaboration with the performers. With “iyouuswe” (reads as “I-You-Us-We”), Young Soon Kim, a pioneer of”Hallyu (한류): Korean Wave”, and her multifaceted team will create a visually provocative and intimate piece that challenges audiences to examine who we are and how we relate to others. It’s a story about developing meaningful relationships in which we struggle to seek a sense of ‘i’ as part of a greater ‘we’.
