Inspired by both an experimental Hollis Frampton film about language and her personal experiences as a mother, the work features an evocative original performance text by Mohr. The work also features an installation by artist Katrina Rodabaugh of soft sculptures evocative of the human body. Dancers will interact with the sculptures, which are central generative tools in the choreographic process. Rather than a finished object, the installation functions as both metaphor and responsive environment for the dance. Completing the program will be the West Coast premiere of Susan Rethorst’s acclaimed Behold Bold Sam Dog. The shows are the culmination of Rethorst’s residency in the Bay Area, part of Hope Mohr Dance’s Bridge Project, which brings notable choreographers to the Bay Area to enrich the cultural landscape. Rethorst is known for works that are rich in gestural detail, meticulously crafted, funny, and surprising. This work was made possible, in part, with commissioning funds from ODC Theater and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.Duration: 2 Hours, including intermission.
