Informed by KYL/D’s engagements with community practitioners of diverse spiritual outlooks, THE DOOR investigates the role of movement in nourishing our beliefs about meaning and mystery. This world premiere performance features stunning projections by visionary multimedia designer Jared Mezzocchi. The concert also includes the critically acclaimed Dedication, a solo described as “a nuanced distillation of sorrow” (New York Times). All choreography by Kun-Yang Lin.
Engagements with faith practitioners have been graciously facilitated by the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia. Other collaborators include Dancer, Philosopher and Scholar of Religion Kimerer LaMothe, Composer/Sound Designer Cory Neale, Lighting Designer Alyssandra Docherty, Set Designer Sara Outing and Costume Designer Jill Peterson.
KYL/D Dance Artists: Liu Mo, Evalina Carbonell, Weiwei Ma, Annielille Gavino, Grace Stern, Nikolai McKenzie, Keila Pérez-Vega, Frank Leone, Francis Markocki, Kyan Namazi and Barbara Craig (apprentice)
