Final 4 days: Far East Tour & NYU Korean Graduate School Association - NYU KGSA(https://nyukgsa.com)
FAR EAST TOUR
In 1977, Young Soon Kim came to the US from
her native Korea with just two suitcases and
$240 to pursue her dream of becoming a dancer.
Eleven years later, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company was born; 24 years and thousands of performances later, the company is returning to Korea to perform in three cities: Seoul, Sungnam, and Kim’s birthplace, Gwangju.
Our tour program consists of two of Kim’s masterworks: SSOOT and Here NOW So Long; for the latter work, the troupe’s 11 dancers perform with live video art and a commissioned score by “new-music” composer and guitar master, Marco Cappelli.
Our bags are packed and we’re ready to go! However, WHITE WAVE must raise funds to cover our tech and production costs, and with your help, our company can make this amazing journey to Asia!
