The weather was casual. I wore dress pants and top--leather shoes, jewelry and a cute little purse.

Nothing like what is being advertised all over the city. It was okay. My favorite number was Paper Cut Men

Fantastic dance. Tranit wasn't my favorite when I saw an incomplete version last year. But it has now evolved into a much better piece. The world premier that we saw second blew my mind. Fantastic choreography, staging, costuming, and above all...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“As always with ODC … anticipate superlative, witty modern dance par excellence.” —_San Francisco Chronicle _
Check out the great Goldstar member reviews of last year’s series.

Description

Program A:

Breathing Underwater

This visceral meditation on the realm of young women features four female dancers and a score by sensational “one-woman orchestra” Zoe Keating. The four dancers inhabit their world in movement that quietly mounts in intensity to a bracing, breathless end.

Cut-Out Guy

ODC/Dance’s dancers shine in KT Nelson’s acclaimed work exploring the fierceness and fragility of men. Explosive ferocity shifts to stirring tenderness within the compelling, experimental sounds of acclaimed electronic artist Ben Frost.

_Lifesaving Maneuvers _(World Premiere)

By turns humorous and darkly evocative, Lifesaving Maneuvers reflects on the human capacity to prevail. This full company work with an original score by Jay Cloidt investigates the things we do to stay fleet of foot and afloat - from the sly and invisible to the sensational - ultimately celebrating the strength of the human spirit.

Program B:

Triangulating Euclid (World Premiere)

Way and Nelson team up with acclaimed New York-based choreographer Kate Weare in this unprecedented collaboration designed to shake up their creative process and explore new artistic territory. Inspired by a rare original edition of Euclid’s Elements, the most influential work in the history of mathematics, this highly physical and emotive piece moves from the formal elegance of geometry to its human implication: from triangles to threesomes, from lines to connections, from the page to the heart.
