About the Ticket Supplier: Liss Fain Dance

Visceral. Emotional. Compelling. Liss Fain Dance is renowned for its innovative blending of fast-paced modern dance with the clarity and vertical lift of ballet. Unlike a mixed repertory company, Liss Fain's concerts have a single construct as a unifying factor in all the evening's pieces. Through movement that is technically and structurally precise and through careful juxtaposition of individuals and groups, Ms. Fain creates the forcefulness and complexity of an emotional environment. Exemplifying the style of European contemporary dance, her work incorporates ballet's kinetic precision with the flow and movement experimentation of modern dance.

Since it's founding in 1988, Liss Fain Dance has produced vibrant, abstract pieces that are at the forefront of new approaches to integrated collaborative performances. The nine member, San Francisco based contemporary dance company performs dances that are about "shape, expression, flow and musicality."
