A choreographic odyssey by Guild Dance Company Artistic Director Alex Ung that traces the journey of his immigrant Tai Dam family from war-torn Southeast Asia to Iowa.
Olympic Performance Group is proud to bring The Guild Dance Company of Seattle, WA to perform newly created choreography by this dynamic new group. Immigration Stories, a choreographic odyssey by Artistic Director Alex Ung, traces the journey of his immigrant Tai Dam family from war-torn Southeast Asia to Iowa, from the 1940s to the 1970s. Told through traditional Tai Dam dance accompanied by drum, string and pipe along with a blend of hip and hop and contemporary dance styles set to contemporary music, will complete the narrative of this engaging and timely historical reflection. Experiencing the fears and challenges of escaping one’s homeland to the satisfaction of creating a new place to call home in America, are current and compelling messages that build understanding. Local youth dancers will be opening the show with new choreography, also by Ung, conveying the immigration experience through the eyes of young people.

Sensory Access is a nonprofit organization creating amazing experiences for children with Sensory difficulties. We feel strongly that everyone should be able to enjoy the magic of theater, the thrill of a concert, or the joy of a theme park. Children on the Autism Spectrum, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, and many other neurodevelopmental disorders have difficulty processing sensory information, which often gets in the way of enjoying events with their families. Our staff will help find tools, tips and accommodations so that each family has the ability to enjoy events fully with their child. For theatre productions, Sensory Access certified Theatres receive social stories about the specific theatre, guidance on how to help guests enjoy the show, and breakdowns of sensory moments for each show in their season. Noise-reducing headphones and quiet fidgets are available to borrow.
Service animals that qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act are always welcome at BPA. Service animals must be leashed or harnessed at all times and must also remain quiet for the courtesy of our actors and patrons. Please alert the Box Office at the time of ticket purchase if you intend to bring a service animal so that we may ensure that proper seating is reserved for you.View less
