Photo Flash: First Look at Garret + Moulton's THE LUMINOUS EDGEPhoto Flash: First Look at Garret + Moulton's THE LUMINOUS EDGE
by BWW News Desk - Feb 27, 2015

San Francisco, CA, February 26, 2015 – By popular demand, award-winning choreographers Janice Garrett and Charles Moulton will stage encore performances of The Luminous Edge, their highly successful evening-length dance theater work that premiered in September, 2014. Premiere performances sold out in 2014 and the work made multiple Bay Area critics' top-choice lists for the year, making it one of the choreographers' most popular and successful works to date. The deeply expressive and theatrical work explores themes of transcendence, hope and rebirth and features six Garrett + Moulton dance soloists and an 18-dancer “movement choir”—a theatrical form also used by Garrett and Moulton in their 2009 and 2011 productions, The Illustrated Book of Invisible Stories and The Experience of Flight in Dreams. Performances of The Luminous Edge will be given Thursday-Saturday, July 9-11, at 8 PM and Sunday, July 12, at 3 PM, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater, located at 701 Mission Street.

by BWW News Desk - Oct 28, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - OCTOBER 28, 2014 --Taking on Selfie Culture, Jess Curtis/Gravity will once again challenge and expand conceptions of performance and social context with a new production that combines performing bodies, online social networking, and video projection in an examination of the effects of the intertwining of digital and embodied experience. A dance of process, community, memory, and resistance, The Dance That Documents Itself uses social networking and digital media to examine the effects of those very technologies (and the socio-economic conditions they spawn in communities) on dancing bodies, and to expose the threads of human interaction that come together to become a live dance performance. The Dance That Documents Itself features 4 dancers and incorporates live-feed and recorded video with live and recorded music to dynamically explore how technologies affect our lives, dancing bodies, the creative process, and the communities that we live in. Eight performances of The Dance That Documents Itself will be given Thursdays through Sundays, December 4-7 and 11-14, at 8:30 pm at CounterPulse, 1310 Mission Street, San Francisco, 94103. For tickets and information, visit www.counterpulse.org andwww.jesscurtisgravity.org and participate in/follow the development of the project on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TheDanceThatDocumentsItself.

BWW Blog: Ed Dixon Returns in Pittsburgh Public Theatre's L'HOTELBWW Blog: Ed Dixon Returns in Pittsburgh Public Theatre's L'HOTEL
by Guest Blogger: Ed Dixon - Oct 21, 2014

In my cranky old age, I have become virtually phobic about all means of public transportation, an odd affectation for someone who has spent his entire life zooming from one theater to another across several countries. My dear friend, Nick Noone knows this about me, so when he learned that I was about to start rehearsing my new play, L'HOTEL at the Pittsburgh Public Theatre, he offered to drive me both to and from. He did this in spite of the fact that he lives nowhere near Pittsburgh or New York City. This has prompted me to refer to him as Mother Teresa del Auto Spirito. (more...)
