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.

I went with my granddaughter who was visiting from Mendocino County. She had taken a dance workshop at ODC last summer and loved it, so we were both familiar with the organization.
Although the event we attended is an annual event, neither of us had attended previous performances, so we did not know what to expect and were looking forward to being surprised.
We were treated to two wonderful dance performances of two very different styles by two exciting young choreographers. Then a very interesting Q&A with the choreographers following the performance. The space is very intimate and well designed for maximum view from all seats.
Drinks and snacks were available at very reasonable prices, and drinks were allowed in the theater during the performance.
Street parking was easy at this time (5:30 PM Sunday eve).
