WHITE WAVE Dance announces Three Free Performances of iyouuswe II, made possible by City Artist Corps Grant Initiative in October 2021
WHITE WAVE Dance announces three free performances of our newest production, iyouuswe II (I-You-Us-We-Two), on October 9, 28 and 30, 2021 at DUMBO Archway, Bethesda Fountain, and the Home of WHITE WAVE Dance, respectively, at 5pm EST as part of the City Artist Corps Grant Initiative.
iyouuswe II is a multi-year collaboration with pioneering choreographer Young Soon Kim and composer Marco Cappelli, in collaboration with their performers, as they continue to explore the body's three dimensions in space. Probing the weight of human emotions, the work presents a vividly colored vision where movement and mise-en-scène meld seamlessly.
During this critical time of the Covid Pandemic, this piece challenges us to examine who we are and how we relate to ourselves and to each other. It is a story of developing relationships by which we struggle to find a sense of ‘i’ as part of a 'we.’

WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company
Captivating performances by world-class WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company, presenting the artistic culmination of 30 years of Ms. Kim’s choreographic exploration. Art is a window through which artists share their sense of beauty with others, and the company is a vehicle to fulfill Young Soon Kim’s artistic vision which is expansive, challenging the threshold of dance, music, theater and visual art, surging forward to create new possibilities.
Ms. Kim creates works of vision and movement in reverence and awe by challenging and broadening the boundaries of dance. Her work is hailed as "exhilarating, visually stunning and emotionally rich.” For her elaborate multimedia dance-theater productions, Ms. Kim collaborates with top-artists in their respective fields, including composers/musicians, video artists, costume designers, and dramatists.
