Sonya Tayeh : you'll still call me by name


This event is over

you'll still call me by name


Choreographer Sonya Tayeh (Obie and Lucille Lortel Award winner, Drama Desk–and Emmy Award nominated) brings us you’ll still call me by name, an emotionally-charged dance-symphony that explores a mystifying, complex and jagged relationship between a mother and daughter. The piece exposes the cellular desire for familial acceptance, intimately investigating and dissecting the heartbreaking chasm that forms when it is lost—and the endurance it takes to transcend that space between. Original live music composed by indie-folk duo The Bengsons.
