Presenters RSVP here.
Commissioned by Live Arts as part of the Live Feed creative residency program.

Obie and Lucille Lortel Award winner, and Drama Desk and Emmy Award nominated choreographer, Sonya Tayeh, presents excerpts from her newest work, 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 show, performed by a company of ten dancers and six musicians, features an original score composed by The Bengsons, whose music has been called exhilarating, raw, spine-tingling and radiantly emotive (The GuardianTime Out New York). Tayeh’s riveting new work 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 the space in between.
