As in past years, performing artists are anticipated to hail from Europe, Canada, East Asia, Metro NY, and across the US.
The SoloDuo Dance Festival’s foremost priority is to inspire performing artists of all stripes and callings to stretch the limits of their creativity and take it to new heights, and to provide vivid experiences for audiences, with the goal of finding and nurturing promising young talent.
Each choreographer/company may submit up to two applications for SoloDuo Dance Festival. Each application requires a separate application form, video, and non-refundable application fee. All applications will be reviewed by a panel of impartial adjudicators. Selected choreographers will be notified via email by mid-October 2022.
Formed in 1988, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company (WHITE WAVE) strives to inspire audiences through multi-dimensional dance productions reflecting themes and philosophies both modern and timeless. Their mission is to be a potent stimulus for change and expansion of the dance/arts world through the production of dance concerts, classes, residencies, and education. Artistic Director Young Soon Kim’s vision is expansive, challenging the threshold of dance, music, theater and visual art, surging forward to create new possibilities. WHITE WAVE provides both emerging and established choreographers/companies with a NYC venue where they can congregate, create, rehearse and present new dance works through our festivals.
WHITE WAVE created DDF in 2001 in response to the dance community’s need for performance opportunities that would not only present, but also produce, the work of rising choreographers at minimal expense for the artist. The festival is now recognized as New York’s most prestigious gathering of pioneering choreography, encouraging experimentation, creativity, and originality.
