3 x 13
12 Journeys. 8 Countries. One dance film experience.
Produced by Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre and Created by award-winning Director Eimi Imanishi and Choreographer Samar Haddad King, 3 x 13 explores the singularity of the individual and the universality of the human experience.
In 12 short films with original music by Lou Tides, 12 artists from around the globe share a journey of transformation that deeply marked their lives. These personal accounts of parenthood, loss, race, exile, dreams both realized and abandoned, all find expression through a common choreography for body and camera, offering an intimate glimpse into the performers’ inner and outer worlds.
The work culminates in an interactive 13th film that unites all 12 journeys in a virtual ensemble that invites audiences to chart their own course across 6 languages and 8 countries: Cuba, Egypt, France, Mali, Mexico, Palestine, South Korea, and the US.
Performers: Ambar Luna (MX), Carlos Blanco (CU), Jaewoo Jung (KR), Kayna Wilson (US), Kristin Clotfelter (US), Lassina Kone (ML), Mohammed Smahneh (PS), Nagham Othman (EG), Nidal Abdo (FR), Samaa Wakim (PS), Yukari Osaka (US), Zoe Rabinowitz (US).
