Liss Fain Dance, San Francisco's own acclaimed contemporary company, premieres the latest in its signature series of performance installations, The Imperfect Is Our Paradise, inspired by William Faulkner's stream-of-consciousness novel The Sound and the Fury. Fain's innovative productions provide a new kind of interactive arts experience, as the audience can choose to either stay seated or move around and check out the set, sound environment and dancers from a variety of different viewpoints. This new work by Fain and composer Dan Wool delves into the evolution of relationships through solo, duo and group dances, while incorporating text from Faulkner's book as part of the rhythmic landscape.

Peregrine can’t sleep. The following day she’s turning sixty and has to give a speech which she’s not yet written. Anxiously she bounces off the walls of her apartment in the middle of the night trying to figure out what to do about getting older and what the hell she’s going to say to a bunch of young people looking for advice. Peregrine—played by several performers—searches her life for clues: What has she done wrong? What has she done right? What should she do now? And then, an unexpected visitor alters the course of the night.
ODC Theater is proud to present the world premiere of Night Falls, a work of physical theater co-created by award-winning playwright/director Julie Hébert and San Francisco dance institution Deborah Slater.
