WHITE WAVE’s Artistic Director Young Soon Kim founded the WAVE RISING SERI ES in 2006 as a platform for companies who may not have the resources to stage full productions of their w orks. WAVE RISING is one of the only programs of its kind in New York City, offering rising choreographers the opportunity to present their work on a large scale, often for the first time, alongside a handful of invited companies from among the most visionary names in contemporary dance. The WAVE RISING SERIES, which started by presenting local companies, now features innovative dancemakers from around the w orld. Participating ensembles are chosen through an open application process by a selection panel including prominent figures from the dance world. The superb national and international companies are given 30 minutes each on a shared bill, performing three times over the course of the three w eek festival. Roslyn Sulcas of the New York Times wrote, “[The WAVE RISING SERIES’] attempt to showcase a broad variety of work is admirable. Tickets are cheap and dancing plentiful; it’s a good mix.“
