“The Crossing,” lead by Edward Schocker and the Crossing Ensemble, centers on performance as a means to communication with the spirit world. Utilizing Asian musical genres, such as Japanese Gagaku and Korean shamanist ritual music, “The Crossing” allows the performers and audience the opportunity to investigate what a “non-material world” means to them. This can be achieved through connecting or remembering ancestors, engaging in meditation/prayer, or allowing the body to physically move as the music takes it. The piece is for anybody who is seeking to look beyond the material world. The show also includes a performance by KaDao Yin.
These performances by Edward Schocker and the Crossing Ensemble 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. The Festival features more than 100 performances by over 60 different artists, ensembles and companies. Get discounts on tickets to see multiple shows at the Festival by buying a Festival pass.
