About Sonya Tayeh
Obie and Lucille Lortel Award winner and Drama Desk and two-time Emmy Award-nominated choreographer Sonya Tayeh presents you’ll still call me by name, an emotionally-charged dance symphony that explores a mystifying, complex, and jagged relationship between a mother and daughter. Tayeh’s riveting new work exposes the cellular desire for familial acceptance, intimately investigating and dissecting the heartbreaking chasm that forms when it is lost and the endurance it takes to transcend the space in between.
The work is performed by a company of ten dancers and six musicians, including collaborators Lucille Lortel nominated artist Jo Lampert and indie folk duo The Bengsons, who composed the original score.
