In Philly - I'm continuing to perform and explore creative space with Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D) and the Nora Gibson Performance Project (NGPP). Both companies will be performing at the Koresh Come Together Festival at the Suzanne Roberts Theater in Philly. This is the second year that the Koresh Dance Company has brought together over 20 Philly-based companies to perform at this incredible venue. Last year, the community vibe back stage was so incredibly supportive - I'm excited to be a part of this again! KYL/D is performing two different works - one on Wednesday, July 23rd and the second on Saturday, July 26th. NGPP is performing on Friday, July 25th, and Nora has us back en pointe! Here's more information on the performance and tickets: Come Together Festival 2014
In NYC - Lincoln Center!! KYL/D has been invited to perform at the Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival! We're part of three weeks of world-class performances in the plazas. We perform on August 7th at 7:30pm and it's Free! We've been digging deeper into Be/Longing 2 and I'm really excited to share this work at this level. Here's more on the performance: Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival
In Germany - KYL/D is one of three US companies to be invited to the international tanzmesse festival in Germany. This is KYL/D's (and my) Eurpoean debut! We're sharing Mandala Project, which is a piece that we've also shared with the people of Indonesia in 2011, and Philly in 2011 and 2013, and NYC in 2012. As we're re-investigating this piece, Kun-Yang has been challenging us to find a deeper connection to the mandala, to our communities, and to the way that we "talk" about our work through our movement. Personally, I love this piece! Through the audience feedback and the performance process, Mandala Project has revealed to me the ability and power of live performance to create connection and community between performers, between performers and audience, and between audience members. I'll be sharing more about this process as we journey closer - stay tuned!
