Goodbye DanceGround

 

December 10th, 2016

Saturday at 7pm

DanceGround Keriac

1805 Divisadero Street

San Francisco, CA 94115

 

DanceGround Keriac is a historic dance/performance space that is being lost because of gentrification & eviction. After 25 years of serving the San Francisco dance community and providing affordable work/live space for many many artists, DanceGround Keriac is forced to close it’s doors. Scott Wells and the DanceGround Residents are holding a final benefit performance to celebrate all the wonderful dances and dancers this space held and nourished over the years and raise some money to help with move out costs. There will be performances and rituals to bless and release the space and Keriac's ghost (who’s ashes are still under the dance floor) by artists who used to live and work there.

Dance Mission Theater

3316 24th Street

Keith Hennessy told Scott Wells that he didn’t like the “gay” joke in Wells’ dance. Scott said, “Okay. Let’s make a show.” Working together for the first time in 23 years, long-time Bay Area choreographers Hennessy and Wells ask: What political territories are exposed, broadened, or critiqued, through the simple act of two bodies in contact? Performers are Jose Abad, James Graham, Sebastian Grubb, Kaitlin Guerin, Keith Hennessy, Megan Lowe, Scott Wells, Miriam Wolodarski, and Shira Yaziv.

Meeting Room

Finnish Hall Performing Arts Salon

 

October 14th, 2016

Friday at 8pm

 

The Finnish Hall - Meeting Room

1970 Chestnut St

Berkeley, CA 94702

 

"Meeting Room" is a site-specific duet rooted in contact improvisation and partnering in relationship to a space. In this dance, Megan and Sonsherée must all ways be in contact with an architectural structure in the room, either directly or through each other—an exciting challenge for the dancers to explore, that evolves as they shift from surface to surface. Through this unique rule and limitation, new possibilities of movement and relating to each other are found.

Funsch Dance Experience
100 Days Score

 

November 2015 to April 2016

 

The 100 Days Score is a list of 100 prompts to spark daily movement and creative investigations. The prompts are designed to take place anywhere you can make them happen.  The goal is to support home practice in direct and tangible ways, to direct practice towards exploration and away from production, to examine our first choices and immediate instincts, and to invite in influence from other media as a means of enriching creativity. The score can be used for compositional, improvisational, and/or physical-mental conditioning ends. Most importantly the score values autonomy and the freeing of exploration from productivity.

Never Finished: Explorations at the Finnish

 

Screening on:

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

 

Fourth Annual Tiny Dance Film Festival

Ninth Street Independent Film Center

145 9th Street

San Francisco, California 94103

 

A girl. Some stairs. Some railings. A door. It's frame. A wall. A ledge. The floor. Some grates. A bench. A window. Curtains... Never Finished: Explorations at the Finnish is a truly inventive, site-specific exploration that is sensuous, full of texture and trickiness rooted in weight and elasticity, expanding perspective on the infinite ways a person can interact with the space around them. Crawl through and explore with the dancer, indulge in gravity defying/gravity defining feats, witness tender moments of connection, and watch a space come to life.

There will be variety of instrumentation, harmonies, and genres in this cohesive collaboration!
