Yoo & Dancers Presents Chea
World Premier

Choreography by Hee Ra Yoo and the dancers
Music by the Korean Contemporary Music Ensemble Jambinai

I deeply miss my grandmother, who was a Korean traditional dancer. We often danced together when I was a young girl, and I watched per perform with her dance troupe. To honor her, this new work draws from Korean dance, reminding us that today’s struggles and triumphs are merely echoes of the past.

– Hee Ra Yoo
