17c by Big Dance Theater

December 15, 2018
2:00 pm
Zellerbach Playhouse

For more than two decades, the Obie Award-winning Big Dance Theater has been making uncategorizable, galvanizing work that undermines genre boundaries. The company’s latest effort is a portrait of Samuel Pepys, the outlandish 17th-century politician whose obsessive, tell-all diaries are a startling precursor to our own social media culture. The ensemble weaves music, dance, video, and text in an exploration—part celebration, part inquisition—of the moral murkiness of Pepys’ legacy as statesman and notorious philanderer, juxtaposing his own writings with the radical feminism of his contemporary, the playwright Margaret Cavendish, and the cult of online annotators at pepysdiary.com.
