Van Huynh Company: Re:birth

Lancaster Arts is thrilled to welcome back Dam Van Huynh’s company for another extraordinary and moving exploration of memory through the lived-experience of a child refugee of the Vietnam war.   

Choreographer, Dam Van Huynh draws upon the words of writers, poets, and activists as he unravels recollections of his past. Retracing visual impressions and sensations, Re:birth is a memory book of long forgotten stories which begin to resurface; a distortion between memories and dreams.   

Originally from Southern Vietnam, Dam Van Huynh and his family fled after the war and settled in the USA where Dam was raised, graduating from the Boston Conservatory of Berklee. He has worked with various companies and choreographers including Merce Cunningham, The Nevada Ballet, Portugal’s CeDeCe, Richard Alston and Phoenix Dance Theatre.
