by B Billy Xiong
December 11 – 20, 2014
7:30 p.m. Thursdays – Saturdays

Moments of family, love, sadness, and darker things. Moments hidden. Moments from a Hmong son’s life. Actor and B-Boy B Billy Xiong uses dance, narrative, and an original hip-hop score to explore blame and resilience when things fall apart. In a world shaped by the reverberating ripples of his parents’ divorce, Ntov Ntoo is a glimpse into Xiong’s journey to stitch back together what has been torn. And, in doing so, he finds self-love, acceptance, and beauty.

The title for this show means “Cutting Trees,” and comes from a story that B’s mother shared with him during the process of creating this performance: While she was cutting down a tree in order to survive in Thailand, she was laughed at her for doing “the work of a man,” all on her own.
