The thoroughly modern and brilliantly daring Post:Ballet presents its fifth season program -- Five High -- at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Lam Research Theater. This innovative evening of dance features the premiere of the new work ourevolution along with two critically acclaimed collaborations: 2013's field the present shifts and 2012's Mine is Yours. Set to a mesmerizing score by composer Nils Frahm, ourevolution brings together choreographer/director Robert Dekkers and San Francisco-based painter Enrique Quintero in a work that explores technology's ability to facilitate meaningful conversation between individuals and communities.
