Yoo and Dancers is a modern dance company founded in 2009 by Hee Ra Yoo upon completing her MFA at NYU Tisch. Before coming to New York, Yoo has danced with the Korean National Ballet, the California Ballet, the San Diego City Ballet, the Canberra Dance Theatre in Australia, and the Kirov Ballet company Russia, and she has also coached the Australian and Korean Olympic Gymnastics Teams. In New York City, Ms. Yoo has taught at the Joffrey Ballet School, Dance New Amsterdam, and Peridance.
In “Glass Ceiling,” dancers defy the audience’s understanding of traditional physics by performing as if various walls and surfaces of the space are in fact the floor. By opening the viewers’ minds to different perspectives, we are forced to think of our relationship to space in new ways.
