From The Top

Cowell Theater

Through Jun 4th


Victor Fung Dance performs From The Top, a witty work that examines power relationships between dancers and choreographers at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Audiences see a fictional scenario depicting an everyday dance rehearsal that comments on the absurdity of maintaining artistic integrity and the meaning of art. The stage action highlights the conflicts between an ever-demanding choreographer and the dancers who heroically attempt to fulfill the choreographer’s artistic vision. Humorous voice-overs and supertitles make sly observations about the politics of performance. Catch a preview of the piece with this video link. This is a shared bill with JJBro and Scarabe.

These performances by Victor Fung Dance are hosted by Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival, which runs from May 25 – June 4 exclusively at FMCAC.
