Yin Yue Dance Company
An Evening of World Premiere Duets and Solos
Kristalyn Gill, Jordan Lang, Grace Whitworth, Nat Wilson and Yin Yue
Acclaimed choreographer and 2021 Dance Magazine Award honoree Yin Yue presents Ripple, the first stage performance by Yin Yue Dance Company since the onset of the pandemic. The world premiere features two duets and two solos, linked together to create a single continuous performance.
Honored with the Harkness Promise Award for the innovation of her choreography in her first decade of professional work, Yin says Ripple emerged from the “lingering sense of isolation” that resulted from the pandemic. “A duet is something we took for granted before, but it has become such a unique experience,” she says. “Intimacy and trust between two people carries more weight now. I am using duets and solos to preserve the sensation of dancing together through hand holding, body touching, weight sharing and the enhanced vulnerability that comes from knowing all of this can go away.”
This Performance is also available online. On Demand streaming begins Friday, November 19 at 12 pm ET through Sunday November 21 at midnight.
