WHITE WAVE presents our 6th Annual SoloDuo Dance Festival featuring 30 dancemakers from the New York Metro area, from across the U.S. WHITE WAVE’s Artistic Director Young Soon Kim founded the SoloDuo Dance Festival in 2016. The program celebrates the unique art of the solo and duet, creating new opportunities to display the latest work of both emerging and mid-career choreographers, offering vivid experiences for audiences with the goal of discovering and nurturing young talent, making Dixon Place a one of-a kind venue to showcase intimate solos or duets.


 This year features several brilliant young choreographers showing their latest works at 2022 SoloDuo!
Coredance Contemporary is an Australian modern dance company residing in New York City. The company’s mission is to empower the female voice by merging artistry and athleticism through the medium of dance performance. And Jacques Torres said that “What attracted me to this company is the physical power of the women”. John Beasant III is the Artistic Director of John Beasant and Dancers and is also an Assistant Professor of Dance at the UH School of Dance. He performed worldwide and received raved reviews like “I was pleasantly surprised by the subtlety of John Beasant’s choreographic voice” from Neil Ellis Ortz (Dance Source Houston). Metanoia Dance is a company newly founded by Jenifer Dillow in 2021 and the purpose of the piece, ‘To My Younger Self”, is to highlight mental illness and to extend a message of hope to those struggling with mental health or any other battle in this unprecedented period. Julian Donahue as the second recipient of the David Hallberg Scholarship joined New York Theatre Ballet in the spring of 2019, and his choreographic debut “Displacement” explores the intimacy, conflict, and joy of romantic and platonic same-sex relationships in 2021. THE MARK dance company (Charlotte, NC) was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director, Arlynn Zachary presents ‘Jouska’ and INDY Week’s Arts Blog praised that "In Arlynn Zachary’s revelatory Jouska, Jacob Brown’s precise, brisk, incandescent solo was some of the strongest work of the evening—and the week.” Smutek Dance’s piece, a dance company based in Detroit, ‘Dissonance’, which premiered at Detroit Dance City Festival 2020 was began as a piece set on 10 women before the pandemic and was then reworked into a duet.
