WHITE WAVE’s festivals are widely covered by the press. One special highlight of WHITE WAVE’s press coverage was in the fall of 2007, feature on ABC Channel 7, EYEWITNESS NEWS, where the WAVE RISING SERIES was described as “a dance extravaganza you will not want to miss”. In addition, Jennifer Dunning of the New York Times wrote “…The ambitious festival, directed by Young Soon Kim and presented at the gleaming John Ryan Theater at the WHITE WAVE Performance and Rehearsal Space in Brooklyn, stood out for the generally high level of the choreography and performing.” DANCE Magazine’s Siobhan Burke wrote in the 2008 New York Notebook, “Presenting three dance festivals in four months may seem like a challenge, but Young Soon Kim embraces the task. All come together through (her) ongoing search for unbridled creativity, brazen curiosity, and dance that does away with boundaries.”
Opening Night Gala Celebrations: These three single-night unique previews offer a sampling of all of the artists participating in the upcoming week’s performance, followed by a wine and cheese reception.
