Sonya Tayeh’s original work-in-progress You'll Still Call Me By Name is a dance-symphony - an emotionally charged dream-memoir of her deeply complex, mystifying and, at times, jagged relationship with her mother, and thus, with herself. Developed through the Live Feed Program, the new work features frequent collaborators Jo Lampert (performer) and folk and gospel-infused musical wonders The Bengsons (Composer/Performers Abigail Nessen Bengson & Shaun McLain Bengson). You’ll Still Call Me By Name is a theatrical purging, a cathartic exploration of ritual, anger and love. It is the fiery story of faith and choice, of family and devotion, and of the extreme beauty and enlightenment of an individual’s sudden transformation, and the tumult it can cause for those around them.

Live Artery: 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.
