Yełkaanenh T'eede Gaay (Dawn Twilight Girl-Child) was conceived in a college dance composition class at New World School of the Arts by dancer-choreographer Enrique Villacreses as a solo performance for Kashia Kancey. The title translates to Dawn Twilight Girl-Child, and references the 2010 archaeological discovery of two Alaskan infants whose presence, more than 11,500 years ago, points to issues of migration and a shared Native American lineage.
The performance will take place at 7pm and 8pm.
