The Way Out
June 1, 2021
“The Way Out” is a unique mixture of music, art, and protest. It’s the product of the collaborative work of Joe Kye, Diego Garita, and Molly Mendoza. Born in South Korea, Kye and his family immigrated to the United States when he was a child. Diego Garita is a 16-year-old high school student in Brooklyn, NY. Kye and Garita connected through the Young Dancemakers Company, a New York nonprofit with a summer program that pairs musicians and dancers. Molly Mendoza is an artist currently living in Portland, Oregon.
