CRS is thrilled to announce that artist and gymnastics coach Soomi Kim‘s newest dance theater work, Body Through Which the Dream Flows, will be a part of the 2022 New Ohio Theatre Ice Factory Summer Festival this August 3 – 6!
Last month CRS provided financial support for a developmental workshop of the piece, which intersects theatre artist Soomi Kim’s personal history as a veteran gymnastics coach, the aftermath of the Larry Nassar scandal, and the deconstruction of the sport’s governing body, and illuminates the current climate for both coaches and athletes in this era of #metoo and #cancelculture. The show’s cast features Soomi and six young competitive gymnasts, who together generated its original dance and gymnastics inspired movement.
The Body Through Which the Dream Flows creative team also features the stellar artists Meghan Finn (Co-director), Sarah Gancher (dramaturge), Alexandra Beller (choreography dramaturge and mentor), Mars Neri (SM). and Zeke Stewart (sound).
