The theater is small. Almost no bad seats. At least, I couldn't see any.

Description

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

Featured Works:

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.

_

Khaybet_, a solo dance performed by associate artistic director Connie Fink. The dance, which depicts a woman at the end of her life, was choreographed after Burgess participated in a cultural exchange to northern Pakistan.

_

Fractures_, a sparse and nuanced work which sensitively depicts a love triangle. The work will be performed by Yeonjin Cho, Kelly Southall and Sarah Halzack.
