Giselle Deconstruct is a reinterpretation of the ballet Giselle that explores death through love by suicide rather than a failed heart. Suicide is the largest killer of teenage girls worldwide, and is most acute in Southeast Asia where choreographer Veronica Lee-Baik originates. Through dance, Lee-Baik seeks to transcend female degradation into liberation and empowerment.|

The Three Yells
The Three Yells was founded by Veronica Lee-Baik to explore and translate modern dance through choreography, performance, and education. Based in Seattle, Washington, The Three Yells collaborates with cross disciplinary artists to install landscapes which results in a body of work that is as strikingly visual and physical as it is visceral. Some of its most celebrated creations are The Woman That Was Not There, Remember Me, To Restrain The Pillow, Jane, Moon Falling and Her Name Is Isaac.
