Performance: Yelkaanenh T’eede Gaay at PAMM

Thu Aug 23, 2018

Yełkaanenh T’eede Gaay (Dawn Twilight Girl-Child) was conceived in a college dance composition class at New World School of the Arts by dancer-choreographer Enrique Villacreses as a solo performance for Kashia Kancey. The title translates to Dawn Twilight Girl-Child, and references the 2010 archaeological discovery of two Alaskan infants whose presence, more than 11,500 years ago, points to issues of migration and a shared Native American lineage.

Enrique Villacreses is a Miami-based dancer and choreographer. His choreographic works have been presented on the Dancemakers: New Works series at New World School of the Arts and he has performed works by Robert Battle, Mark Morris, Ohad Naharin, and others. He is a 2019 BFA candidate at New World School of the Arts.

Kashia Kancey is a Miami-born dancer and choreographer. Currently a college senior at New World School of the Arts, she has presented work on the Dancemakers: New Works series there and has performed works by Robert Battle, Ohad Naharin, Paul Taylor, and others.
