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.
This performance is supported by the Live Feed creative residency and commissioning program with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
