WHITE WAVE Dance Comes to DUMBO Archway

WHITE WAVE Dance announces three free performances of their newest production, iyouuswe II (I-You-Us-We-Two), on October 9, 28, and 30, 2021 at Bethesda Fountain, DUMBO Archway, and the Home of WHITE WAVE Dance, respectively, at 5pm EST as part of the City Artist Corps Grant Initiative.

iyouuswe II is a multi-year collaboration with pioneering choreographer Young Soon Kim and composer Marco Cappelli, in collaboration with their performers, as they continue to explore the body's three dimensions in space. Probing the weight of human emotions, the work presents a vividly colored vision where movement and mise-en-scène meld seamlessly. During this critical time of the Covid Pandemic, this piece challenges us to examine who we are and how we relate to ourselves and to each other. It is a story of developing relationships by which we struggle to find a sense of 'i' as part of a 'we.'

Eternal NOW (Excerpts)

Revealing secret longings through utterly human stories, choreographer Young Soon Kim and WHITE WAVE Dancepresent Eternal NOW. Kim, whose work has been hailed for its exhilarating, visually stunning, and emotionally rich phrases and textures, presents this expression of movement that perpetually affirms the now, in space and time, as it reveals the inner landscape of human emotion. The result is a compelling, deeply sensual work that exemplifies the remarkable versatility of its performers and the choreographic virtuosity of its maker. Eternal NOW is the fourth and final chapter of the Here NOW series which Kim conceived and began creating in 2010.

"Eternal NOW" premiered in 2014 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM Fisher).

WHITE WAVE Dance presented Eternal NOW, a Multi-Media Dance/Theater Piece, at the Asia Culture Center (ACC), in Gwangju, Korea in 2019.
