Festival Description

WAVE RISING SERIES features acclaimed choreographers from around the globe at its annual festival. The programming includes 19 dance companies showcased in the acclaimed three week festival. A talented group of rising national and international dance-makers have been selected — presenting new and established repertoire three times within a festival week!

WHITE WAVE’s Artistic Director Young Soon Kim founded the WAVE RISING SERIES in 2006 as a platform for companies who may not have the resources to stage full productions of new dance works. Tightly curated by Ms. Kim and an eight-person panel of prominent dance figures, WAVE RISING is one of the only series of its kind in New York City, offering rising choreographers the opportunity to present their work on a large scale, often for the first time, alongside a group of invited companies from among the most visionary names in contemporary dance.

Festival Dates October 23 - November 10, 2013
