Description

Contemporary dance performance by Washington, D.C.’s premiere modern dance company

Becoming American, which explores the experience of a Korean child uprooted from her birthplace when she is adopted by Caucasian American parents. The lead dancer is Katia Chupashko, whose personal story is represented in the work.

Hyphen, which looks at the experience of being a hyphenated American. The work features the full company.
