"Unearthing borders beneath borders."
- Brian Seibert, The New York Times
Directed by diversely cultured Hee Ra Yoo, Yoo and Dancers strives to push through cultural and language barriers and appeal to the collective human condition. Using the universal language of dance, the company connects with audiences on a fundamental, emotional level, pulling from the members' own diverse experiences.
