About this show

Waving Hello is a highly physical dance theater piece full of whimsical dances, songs, language games, scenes, and video. Reveling in iconic pop American images of surf culture while riding the tough waves of New York's urban landscape, troupe Ex.Pgirl creates a humorous, entertaining, and touching look into how four international women assert their place in America. Ex.Pgirl seeks to subvert the idealized American experience and create new ideas of nationalism. Each scene offers one interpretation of America, then sweeps it away with a contrasting perspective. In a magical world where a simple plastic box is transformed into a surfboard, a bathtub, and an instrument of torture, Waving Hello is a feast of visual creativity where the simplest of objects become imbued with resonant meaning.
