February 18, 2021 @ 12:00PM — February 20, 2021 @ 12:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Chart your own course across 12 narratives, 8 countries, and 6 languages, as each artist recounts a journey that changed the path of their lives
Join us for the premiere of this interactive online performance co-presented by Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre and ArteEast, and receive exclusive online content from the artists about the making of this international dance film experience.
Produced by Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre and created by award-winning director Eimi Imanishi and choreographer Samar Haddad King, 3 x 13 explores the singularity of the individual and the universality of the human experience.
In 12 short films with original music by Lou Tides, 12 artists from around the globe share a journey of transformation that deeply marked their lives. These personal accounts of parenthood, loss, race, exile, dreams both realized and abandoned, all find expression through a common choreography for body and camera, offering an intimate glimpse into the performers’ inner and outer worlds.
The work culminates in an interactive 13th film that unites all 12 journeys in a virtual ensemble that invites audiences to chart their own course across 6 languages and 8 countries: Cuba, Egypt, France, Mali, Mexico, Palestine, South Korea, and the US.
