"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 the world." - YOGGS FAMILY NEWSLETTER

American Dance Festival and the Nasher Museum co-present YOGGS FAMILY NEWSLETTER, 2014-present, an immersive experience where the audience is led through the Great Hall of the Nasher Museum by Chris Yon and Taryn Griggs alongside their daughter, Bea Yon. The audience is integrated into the trio as momentary chorus members to their family stories, dances and drawing games. While the dances look "abstract" or non-narrative, this collection addresses how the trio captures experiences, creates memories, and attaches significance to when and where they dance together and who they meet along the way as part of their family story.
