A trio created and performed by Taryn Griggs and Chris Yon,with their daughter Bea Yon.

Dance, for our family, is a parenthesis for life experience. Periods of our lives that we spent working on choreography coincide with periods of major things happening in our lives and in the world.  The ephemerality of our performance is informed by the ephemerality of childhood and parenthood. While the dances we make look "abstract" or non-narrative, this collection of dances addresses how we capture experiences, create memories, and attach significance to when and where we dance together and who we meet along the way as part of our family story.
We have workshopped iterations of our newsletter at Southeastern Center for Contemporary Arts (SECCA) as part of Interstitial, The Southern Theater (MPLS) part of the Candy Box Festival, Goodyear Arts Center (CLT) as part of the North Carolina Dance Festival, and at Dance Limerick as part of the Modes of Capture Symposium.  This May 23-26 of 2024, we are presenting an edition of the Newsletter for La MaMa Moves on a shared program with Yoshiko Chuma.  On September 12, 2024, the American Dance Festival and Nasher Art Museum are co-presenting an evening length promenade where the audience will be led through the lobby of the Nasher and become integrated into our trio as momentary chorus members to our family stories, dances, and drawing games.
