New York, July 30th – on September 17th and 18th, Yangtze Repertory Theatre will present “BUBBLES: Variations in a Foreign Land #11” at Flushing Town Hall, which features three new dance works by international (Korean) choreographers Eun Jung Choi, Jung Woong Kim and Eunhee Lee. The performance will invite audiences to float through intimate memories – familial, foreign and even fragmented – with dances that swim through the womb, weave between mother and daughter, and grapple with those distorted recollections formed along the way. Together, Eun Jung Choi’s All My Socks Have Holes (which will be presented at the 2010 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival), Jung Woong Kim’s My son and a smile, and Eunhee Lee’s Mothers culminate as a most personal passage through time, recalling episodes from here and afar, from infancy to adulthood. Featured is an exploration of repetition, stillness and complex contact work, a disjointed narrative of video and movement, and a special collaboration between artist and daughter. With live musical accompaniment by Alban Bailly and live bass performed by Joshua Morris, the performance will include videos by Grace Jaeyun Shin. Lighting the works is Federico Restrepo.

Beside the three choreographers, artists appearing will include: Marion Ramírez, Sarah Chang and Guillermo Ortega Tanus.

There will be an opening night reception on September 17th from 6:30 to 7:30PM.
