Description: The Korean phrase “거의 다왔는데” means reaching for something that is just a little too far, but possible to obtain, roughly translated to English as “almost there.” Yoo and Dancers’ new work is about our collective dream to reach our desires in a modern, chaotic world. The dancers represent a crowd becoming a stampede, a warning of one possible outcome of our current path. 'Almost There' was developed during Yoo and Dacners’ three-month residency at Dixon Place.

 

“Almost There...” was commissioned by Dixon Place.
