Asia Pyron PYDANCE

Boston Conservatory Theater 31 Hemenway St. (rm 401, 4th floor) , Boston

PYDANCE presents its first full-length show, Graduation, a reflection on human development and experiences of adolescent life through the choreographic storytelling of director Asia Pyron.

Graduation is a choreographic rendering of faceless, theatrical characters traveling through the world they inhabit, telling their nonlinear stories through physical expression and full body movement. Inspired by Kanye West’s use of theatrical skits and monologues to share his personal coming-of-age experiences in his first two albums, College Dropout and Late Registration, Pyron organizes waves of characters weaving in and out of each others’ journeys to illustrate her own rite of passage.
