Stipend for performances.As a dance-based artist, Christine Cali is interested in creating works that are poignant and revelatory; works that (de)construct social norms and openly challenge constructs of gender, race and class. Meshing form/technique with improvisation; precision with complete abandon; motion with words; body with technology; live music/lyrics with the ephemeral body; I guide my dances and dancers into a present, mindful, articulate and daring state within our craft. Live music has been the way for Cali having collaborated on two evening length works in the past 2 years, MOVE THRU ME with Local SF Band The WELCOME MATT (Dance Mission Feb 2011) and Trajectory with Tim Frick/Parts for People (ODC Jan 2010).
