Elsewhere/Otherwise is a dance theatre performance, featuring original choreography and sound co-created by Kristen Yeung and Sadie Leigh. This work is a vehicle and a vessel for processing the deeply personal and universally shared experience of moving from one place to another.
Kristen moved to Seattle in August 2020 from Baltimore, MD and Sadie arrived in Portland in June 2022 from Washington, DC. They both left behind their families, a beloved community of friends and artists, and the only homes they’d ever known. Their bittersweet relocations propelled them toward the challenge and excitement of newness, and toward romance and partnership with people who wanted to be out west. Though their stories are not identical, the overlap is potent.
There will be four performances of Elsewhere/Otherwise – for one night only in both the artists’ old homes and new – serving as a bridge connecting their east coast roots to their west coast bloom. They invite viewers to join them, asking east coast audiences to see them off and west coast audiences to welcome them in.
