San Francisco International Arts FestivalThrough May 28th
This performance is a shared bill with STEAMROLLER Dance Company.
Laura Larry Arrington’s dance performances blend elements that draw upon time, space, body, and wholeness. And in We/AoA, she’ll use dance to explore elements that surround the power, the biology and magnitude of whales.
Please note on May 28 it will be relaxed performance.
The first vertebrates grew jaws. They closed their mouths, but still everything gets in. Gills become lungs. Bodies become identities. Land becomes nation, but still everything gets in, and will find a way out, a chemical change not a physical one. Science says we can not touch anything. The jaw falls open. a sound falls out. A whale, with baleen. Everything gets in
