The Sounds Inside

 

October 11th-13th, 2018

Thursday and Friday at 8pm

Saturday at 6:30pm and 8:30pm 

 

Red Poppy Art House

2698 Folsom Street

San Francisco, CA 94110

 

After a mini-residency and well-received performance in March 2018, the Red Poppy Art House invited artists Megan Lowe, Sonsherée Giles, and WaterSaw to come back and perform The Sounds Inside, a site-specific dance and sound score exploring what is going on within a space, our bodies, and our minds. The strong relationship between Megan and Sonsherée is supported by full trust in each other, both physically and artistically, which allows for new discoveries through proficient movement generation, risk-taking, tackling unusual physical situations, and coming up with compelling solutions. Creating layers of sound through loopers, WaterSaw uses their instruments in both conventional and experiential ways, giving way to an array of textures and sounds ranging from sparse, to rhythmic, to ethereal, to driving. See San Francisco's beloved Poppy come to life in a new and exciting way!
