Event description

Description

DOORS: 7:30pm // SHOW: 8pm

Violinist-looper/composer Joe Kye will release his new album, Migrants in Los Angeles as part of his international tour at NAVEL (1611 S. Hope St) on December 9. Born in Korea and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Kye will present an eclectic, interactive evening filled with music, movement, and emotional exuberance.

Joining Kye will be the Assembly, an LA-based contemporary dance group dedicated to bringing together community with the human body’s expressive potential. The two will create and perform a new work inspired by the many languages, cultures, and experiences in Los Angeles.

Additionally, Kye will premiere his eponymous work, Migrants, a collaborative piece for music, dance, and interactive projection art, with internationally-acclaimed dancer Ching Ching Wong, currently of the the NW Dance Project.

During the performance, attendees will be invited to participate in the creation of a communal art piece that catalogues the diverse paths and ancestries that have led each individual to the show. Wong and Kye will perform the piece together around the world, with stops in Nepal, Los Angeles, Japan, San Francisco, China, Israel, South Korea, and NYC.

A multi-disciplinary exploration of identity, culture, and the spirit of human migration, Migrants will also include tales of immigration from Kye and Wong’s personal journeys. The show explores many themes relevant to a rapidly globalizing world: the celebration of roots, cross-cultural migration, and the need to recognize universal humanity across borders and artificial boundaries. At its conclusion, Migrants will offer audiences an opportunity to root themselves in their local community while simultaneously seeing themselves as part of a global village.
