Versatile, dynamic, humorous, original, unconventional and award winning. Switzerland's bi-racial choreographing duo Misato Inoue and Félix Duméril make their San Francisco debut with a metaphorical example of the so-called clash of cultures.
Another Chopsticks Story was created with an approach that applies a humorous nod to the story of Madame Butterfly and is virtuosically delivered with a large portion of self-irony.
Tea for Two is an exuberantly energetic duet that juxtaposes Swiss and Japanese cultures. An encounter between a Swiss man and a Japanese woman sees their language difficulties humorously overcome through warm-hearted movement.
In Black Swan Misato Inoue unfolds in a playful, but also aesthetic way like an choreographed origami creating a wide field of possibilities. A small but smart choreography as an homage to beauty and creativity.
Brace yourself for sultry Spanish night when the floor burns with pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar for a riveting display of this true Spanish art form. A mother & daughter duo, Carolina's y Carole's, high energy and passion defines a new dimension in Spanish dance traditions In the heart of North Beach, Pachamama is a small colorful nightclub, full of charm and known for its tapas and great selections of wine, beer and specialty cocktails.
Legendary Children is the latest work by Steamroller Dance Company that explores and explodes contemporary notions of queerness. Set on the penultimate disco dance floor, Legendary Children explores Queer lineage both historical and personal using recorded interviews that are interwoven throughout the performance. Dances that explore the essentiality of queerness set to the music of contemporary queer artists such as Matmos, Bright Light, Bright Light and Jimmy Somerville bump up against the interviews to look at what, if any are the differences between queer bodies and straight bodies and at the body as a site of queer pleasure, queer sorrow and queer resistance.
French-American choreographer and dancer Surya Berthomieux will perform a new 30 minute solo work accompanied by the Musical Art Quintet, with an original score by Sascha Jacobsen. The performance piece is about the ever present struggle with self-image and appearances; a journey through emotion, inner tautness, anger and sorrow—a fight to attain a state of self-acceptance and ultimately shed light on what is behind suffering—the energy of life: love. In spite of everything, love has always been in us. The second half of the program will feature new compositions and arrangements by Sascha Jacobsen for the Musical Art Quintet.
Swan Lake, based on Russian folklore and German legend, follows a heroic young prince as he works to free the beautiful swan maiden from an evil spell. The ballet is in three acts with two intermissions, with music by Tchaikovsky, choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, and libretto by Vladimir Begichev and Vasily Getzer. Running time is approximately two hours and 30 minutes. The Honored Artist of Ukraine, Olga Kifyak, will be dancing Odile/Odette (both the Black Swan and White Swan roles), with Eugeniy Svetlitsa as Prince Siegfried and Ivan Kozlov (who has been performing continuously alongside with Ulyana Lopatkina) as Prince's friend. Alisa Voronova, Sergey Kononenko and Anna Surmina will be performing Swan Lake Pas de Trois for the 25-city American tour.
