Van Huynh Dance Company: Re:Birth (Online)

Van Huynh Dance Company: Re:Birth (Online)


Online Event

In November 2022, Lancaster Arts welcomed back Dam Van Huynh’s company for Re:birth, an extraordinary and moving exploration of memory through the lived-experience of a child refugee of the Vietnam war.

If you missed it live, you can now watch the entire performance, which was filmed in the Nuffield Theatre, as part of our Online Programme. This is your only opportunity to catch this powerful contemporary dance performance.

Book your tickets below on a 'pay what you wish' basis and receive an email confirmation with a link to the film and a password to access it. The film will be available to watch any time from the moment of booking until 30 June 2023.

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.
