YY Dance Company (YYDC) presents the world premiere of NOWHERE, the latest production by acclaimed Chinese American choreographer Yue Yin, on June 8-10, at Chelsea Factory in NYC.
NOWHERE, the latest production by acclaimed Chinese American choreographer Yue Yin, exists outside of any identifiable location or discernible moment in time. Evoking a state of uncertainty and a sense of disconnectedness from our tangible reality, the piece challenges us to embrace feelings of uncertainty and to explore new possibilities and new directions.
NOWHERE, like the world we live in, exists at the edge of a new frontier. Infused with Yin’s stirring physicality and dynamic movement, NOWHERE takes us across boundaries on a journey of self-discovery and provides a communal transcendent experience. This world premiere production features original and live music by Alexandre Dai Castaing.
YYDC is a nonprofit contemporary dance company dedicated to the teaching, production and performance of original choreography by Yin, the company’s founder and artistic director. Yin’s work draws on her original movement vocabulary — FOCO TechniqueTM — a fusion of Chinese folk and contemporary dance movement. The recipient of the 2021 Harkness Promise Award, Yin’s work has been widely recognized for her innovation in choreography and education. She was also awarded the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago 2015 International Commissioning Project, winner of the 2015 BalletX Choreographic Fellowship, and winner of Northwest Dance Project’s 5th Annual Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition in 2013.
