"The Three Yells is not your average modern dance troupe, they work across artistic disciplines to create work which integrates the visual, aural, and physical into a visceral platform which stands not only to entertain but empower." - Seattle Dances
A Crack In The Noise is a reflection of the humanitarian crisis of refugees. The Three Yells hope this project can lead to greater consciousness, support and healing. In our country, immigrants have always been under attack, but today even our highest ranking officials give power to what used to be fringe voices. A Crack In The Noise is a collaborative artwork strengthened by different genres, showing what can be accomplished when differences unite rather than divide. This work expresses the hope, survival and desperation of a journey reflected in the poignant words of poet, Warsan Shire:
no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well
A Crack In The Noise is supported in part by Artist Trust's James W. Ray Venture Project Award, 4Culture Arts Projects Award, Yaw Theater, & Cornish Presents.

VERONICA LEE-BAIK (Project Creator / Choreographer) She/Her
Born in Singapore, Veronica Lee-Baik studied art and dance. She is a visual artist whose medium of choice is the body using it as a tool for dialogue with herself and the world. Her approach to movement activates the senses to become fully alive and involved. She founded The Three Yells to explore and translate social, political, and cultural issues through multidisciplinary performance. The Three Yells is a continual process of discovering her artistic voice as a choreographer and teacher. Lee-Baik has never been one to hew to traditions. Her idiosyncratic approach has been described as "a clear eye for an unusual landscapeher stage pictures are distinctive and disturbing."
Lee-Baik has self-produced twice with Moon Falling (2014) and Giselle Deconstruct (2018) which received the 4Culture Art Projects Award for its first iteration in 2016 and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture CityArtists Projects Award for the evening length premiere in 2017. Lee-Baik was also a recipient of the Artist Trust GAP and the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture smART grant for her project Her Name Is Isaac (2016). She was artist-in-residence for the 2015/16 Cornish Playhouse Arts Incubator Award which resulted in the first ever project produced by Cornish Presents. Lee-Baiks work has been produced by Cornish Playhouse, 12th Avenue Arts, Velocity Dance Center, On The Boards, Northwest Asian American Theatre, Soil Gallery, Bumbershoot, Seattle University, Conduit (Portland), and Victoria Theatre (Singapore).
