San Francisco Performances celebrates the 75th birthday of American composer Philip Glass with a screening of Jean Cocteau's film La Belle et la Bête, alongside a live performance of the opera score Glass composed in 1994 to accompany the film. La Belle et la Bête premiered in 1946, stunning audiences with a visual style that was unlike any they had ever seen before. Melding classical traditions with the avant-garde, Cocteau revolutionized filmmaking, inspiring future generations of directors to this day. As an homage to Cocteau's groundbreaking work as well as the composers associated with Cocteau's films, Glass created the "Cocteau Trilogy" of operas, which could serve as alternate scores to the films La Belle et la Bête, Orphee and Les Enfants Terribles. This live performance by the Philip Glass Ensemble allows you to experience Glass' score as you watch the film on the big screen. Learn More

Hibiki: Resonance From Far Away
Directed, Choreographed and Designed by Ushio Amagatsu
In the imagination of Ushio Amagatsu, artistic director of Sankai Juku, the body in motion is an expression of the infinite: the stream of time passing, the slow, inevitable erosion of stone. Sankai Juku has premiered a new butoh creation nearly every two years, each a “sublime visual spectacle and deeply moving theatrical experience.” Hibiki, a Bay Area debut created in 2002, is regarded as one of Amagatsu's most important and memorable works. The piece highlights his vision of monumental themes: creation, reconciliation and the possibility of rebirth.
In 1980, Sankai Juku was invited to perform in Europe for the first time.Sankai Juku went to Nancy International Festival in France with the firm conviction that Butoh would be accepted.The performance was such a sensation and that the Avignon Festival invited them to perform that year as well.For the next four years,the company remained in Europe and performed in various international festival including Edinburgh International Festival,Spain Madrid International Festival and International Cervantino Festival.
