DIAP Felllow Alethea Pace to perform on March 13th at the Guggenheim
Alethea Pace and Yin Yue
In preparation for her May 19 world premiere at BAM Fisher, Yin Yue opens her rehearsal space to an audience. Working with a newly formed group of seven dancers, she shares her narrative research and phrase-building process, offering an intimate look at the experience of making a dance on the first day of rehearsal.
Alethea Pace is a Bronx-based multidisciplinary choreographer and performer. A former Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre company member, her work has been supported by BAAD!, Dancing While Black, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, New Dance Alliance, New York Live Arts, and the 92nd Street Y. She is committed to creating work in and with her community that is rooted in social justice, born out of resilience, and made in spite of the obstacles facing artists (and people) of color.
Yin Yue, the artistic director of YY Dance Company, has taught her signature FoCo Technique™ around the world. Her company has toured to Germany and China, and presented at SummerStage in New York, BAM Fisher, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Inside Out, and many other venues in the United States. The company will present its spring season in May 2022. As a choreographer, Yue has received commissions from the Martha Graham Dance Company, Boston Ballet, Philadelphia Ballet, Limón Dance Company, Gibney Company, BalletX, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Hubbard Street 2, and many others.
