The Theater at the 14th Street Y co-presents the world premiere of /wē/ featuring MICHIYAYA Dance on Thursday April 25, at 7:30 pm, Friday April 26, at 8:00 pm, Saturday April 27, at 7:30 pm, Sunday April 28, at 4:00 pm.
/wē/ is a collective study on gender identity through a femme-identifying lens that rids the binary, embraces the inner self and builds without walls. States of transcendence, embodiment, neutrality and autonomy are explored as MICHIYAYA Dance interweaves thoughts, memories, and dreams.
Choreographed by co-artistic director Anya Clarke with visual and contextual design by co-artistic director Mitsuko Verdery, /wē/ features the full company of six femme-identifying dance artists: Belinda Adam, Breeanah Breeden, Stephanie Carlos, Núria Martin Fandos, Hannah Seiden, Alexandra Wood, with live sound by performance duo slowdanger. /wē/ also features lighting design by Alejandro Fajardo and projection design by Jess Medenbach.
