Where: Dance New Amsterdam Theater
280 Broadway (enter on Chambers Street), Manhattan, NY
On December 16th and 17th at 8:00 PM, Yoo and Dancers will take the stage at Dance New Amsterdam for a full evening performance that is described as “A solemn and haunting representation of domination that is modern and provocative,” (Karen Clements, Reporter - Jamaica Examiner). Yoo & Dancers is an exciting and vibrant dance company that uses the diversity, and cultural differences of its dancers to create experiences, well-developed and fine movements.
In 160 Miles, Choreographer Hee Ra Yoo, depicts how a single individual ruling through fear severely affect the lives of millions. As the world prepares for the third dictator to take power over North Korea since the Korean War, the dancers will take you on a breath taking journey on how the North Korean quality of life diminishes as dictatorial control grows.
Tickets for the performance are $17 general, $14 students/seniors, $12 DNA/ The Korea Society members and advance price.
