La MaMa presents the World Premiere of “iyouuswe”
by WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company
as part of the 2017 La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival
We are pleased to invite you to the World Premiere of “iyouuswe” at La MaMa Ellen Stewart Theatre (66 East 4th Street, New York City) from May 18 to 21. White Wave presents the opening program of this year’s La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival.
“iyouuswe” (I-You-Us-We) was born from an exciting collaboration between WHITE WAVE’s artistic director, Young Soon Kim and its nine dazzling dancers over the past 12 months. The piece – exhilarating, provocative and shy — scored to original music by longtime collaborator Ki Young, a “borderless musician,” is an uninterrupted 65-minute journey that will challenge us to examine who we are and how we relate to ourselves, and to each other. It’s a story about developing meaningful relationships in which we struggle to seek a sense of ‘i’ as part of a ‘we.’
“iyouuswe” reunites WHITE WAVE Dance with composer/musician Ki Young, dramaturg James Leverett, and lighting designer Yuriy Nayer. Expressly created for the dancers (Anton Martynov, Guanglei Hui, Cara Seymour, Tsai Hsi Hung, Mikelle Rindflish, Mark Willis, Casey LaVres, James Johnson, Juhwan Hwang), this piece will take their creative energies to new heights, transforming “iyouuswe” into a multi-dimensional ‘tour-de-force.’
