WHITE WAVE DANCE presents Eternal NOW Part of American Dance Guild Festival 2024: Leaps Beyond Bounds

February 23 @ 8:00 PM - February 25 @ 9:30 PM

In partnership with American Dance Guild (ADG), WHITE WAVE DANCE Young Soon Kim Dance Company presents a special performance of Eternal NOW at this year’s ADG Festival 2024: Leaps Beyond Bounds. The event will take place on Friday, February 23, 2024 at 8pm at Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 W 55th St, NYC 10019. For more info and ticketing, visit https://adgfest.ticketleap.com/.

The ADG Festival returns to the Ailey Citigroup Theater, February 22 through February 25 with Leaps Beyond Bounds, a four-night program celebrating the Guild’s 68th anniversary. Thirty new and historical dance works will be shown, with this year’s honors celebrating the late choreographer Joan Miller (Lifetime Achievement Award), Ron K. Brown/Evidence (Lifetime Achievement Award), and Celia Ipiotis/Eye on Dance (Distinguished Service in Dance – Lifetime Achievement Award).

The ADG Festival participating artists represent a wide variety of aesthetic and cultural voices, reflecting the broad spectrum of American dance life and the diverse character of dance today. Works by both mature and emerging artists will be shown, including veterans Claire Porter, Chen Dance Theater, Douglas Dunn, and recent Bessie winner Young Soon Kim.

Revealing secret longings through utterly human stories, Eternal NOW presents expression of movement that perpetually affirms the now, in space and time, as it reveals the inner landscape of human emotion. The result is a compelling, deeply sensual work that exemplifies the remarkable versatility of its performers and the choreographic virtuosity of its maker.
