Celebrate & Support the World Premiere of GATHERING: NEW YORK CITY

Join Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre for a private preview of our latest work, Gathering: New York City, followed by a reception with the company.

Gathering is an invitation. It’s a party, a protest, a celebration of harvest, the championship game. Gathering is a night of storytelling and play that is part staged work, part interactive experience in collaboration with local artists and audiences.

See a special private preview of Gathering: New York City before its world premiere 20-22 June at The Shed, followed by a reception with the company, supporters, and friends. Your presence will help Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre raise vital funds to support this ambitious new work that tells the stories of under-represented communities, and furthers our mission to create programs that expand access to - and promote understanding through - the arts.

Can't make it? Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in lieu of attendance! Sponsorship packages are also available below.
