Event Information

The Sun Still Burns Here is an evening-length dance and music work created by Seattle-based choreographer Kate Wallich, her company The YC, and musician/composer Mike Hadreas of the band Perfume Genius. Combining Hadreas’s musical textures and landscapes, Wallich’s choreographic narratives, and Amiya Brown’s production design, The Sun Still Burns Here unravels themes of deterioration, catharsis, and transcendence from the body. Wallich and Hadreas unite a team of musicians, dancers, and designers to create a stunning and emotionally complex performance that radically integrates indie rock with contemporary dance.


The Sun Still Burns Here is commissioned by Seattle Theater Group, The Joyce Theater and MASS MoCA, and is made possible with major support from Studio Kate Wallich and a Project Grant from New Music USA.

This event is supported by a grant from New Music USA.
