Event Description

Choreographer and Artistic Director Regina Klenjoski explores the urgent, nationally relevant topic of immigration through a personal lens. “Far From Home” springs from the odyssey of Klenjoski’s parents. They left a small village in their native Macedonia 50 years ago to escape Old World customs and seek a better life in Vienna, Austria.  Soon after, dreaming the American Dream, they emigrated to America with a suitcase in one hand and their infant daughter in another. They lost deep ties to family, the Orthodox Church, and their cultural history and traditions. They gained a chance to build a new life. Was the difficulty and promise of leaving one’s home and making peace with another worth it?

“Far From Home” weaves poetry, movement, film design and an original score by Macedonian composer Toni Kitanovski into an evening of powerfully emotive dance theatre. The West Coast premiere of a family’s journey of assimilation, cultural identity, and hope marks RKDC’s return to the Armstrong stage for the first time since 2010.

Get lost in the beauty that is DANCE as RKDC celebrates 20 years of inventive choreography, fierce athleticism and compelling storytelling.
