Immigration Stories
Presented by Olympic Performance Group.

Olympic Performance Group is proud to bring The Guild Dance Company of Seattle to perform newly created choreography by this dynamic new group. Immigration Stories, a choreographic odyssey by Artistic Director Alex Ung, traces the journey of his immigrant Tai Dam family from war-torn Southeast Asia to Iowa, from the 1940s to the 1970s.

Traditional Tai Dam dance accompanied by drum, string, and pipe along with a blend of hip hop and contemporary dance styles set to contemporary music will complete the narrative of this engaging and timely historical reflection. Portraying the fears and challenges of escaping one’s homeland alongside the satisfaction of creating a new place to call home in America yield current and compelling messages that build understanding.
