Da-On Dance presents "ROOT"
Choreographer JinJu Song-Begin, a recent immigrant to the US, investigates through a personal lens the psychological journey and challenges an immigrant undertakes in adapting to new surroundings. When adopting a new culture, how does one stay connected to her roots as the very meaning of “roots” begins to morph? ROOT will be performed by five dancers of different nationalities, incorporating their individual stories into the piece. Moving throughout the space during the work, the audience becomes a part of the community created on stage by the dancers and musicians. ROOT features an original score by Jerome Begin for violin and synthesizer, performed live by Begin and violinist Jennifer Choi.
