HOME/S.9th St by Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers
KYL/D’s newest work in development, HOME/S. 9th St., references immigrant journeys, notions of “American-ness” and the meaning of “home.” The piece is informed by the stories of diverse community members along Philadelphia’s famed S. 9th St. corridor, where KYL/D’s dance center is located. Through the creative process of HOME, listening becomes a gesture of grace, a way to explore issues of social justice and sow seeds for healing and community-building through the arts.
