Nocturnes

West Wave Dance Festival

 

Friday, September 29th, 2017, at 8pm and

Sunday, October 8th, 2017, at 8pm

 

Community Music Center

544 Capp St,

San Francisco, CA 94110

 

Sonsherée and Megan will be presenting a new duet with live music from Caroline Penwarden for West Wave Dance Festival's 26th year, focused on a specific genre of music: nocturnes. Originally a nocturne referred to a piece of music played for an evening party, now the familiar form is a single-movement piece inspired by the night. This festival presents the public with several evenings of nocturnes that contrast or comment on our wakeful, busy, and often over-stimulating lives, while bringing to light what is normally covered by darkness.
