WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company

Eternal NOW (excerpts)

Revealing secret longings through utterly human stories, choreographer Young Soon Kim and WHITE WAVE Dance present 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 is a 60-minute multi-media dance theater piece comprised of 10 sections. For this performance, we are happy to present excerpts of “Eternal NOW” without multimedia aspect.
