Gu Jiani (Beijing) & Compagnie Tabea Martin (Switzerland)

June 1, 2017
7:30 pm
Cowell Theater, Fort Mason

A special dance double bill featuring the west coast premiere of Gu Jiani’s "Right & Left" and the US premiere of "Field" by Tabea Martin. "Right & Left" is a haunting tribute to symmetry and its dissolution, ominous and beautiful in equal measure. Gu Jiani fuses incredible precision with an arresting mix of projection and light offering a jaw-dropping perspective on our oldest questions: Why do we love, and how do we stop it from destroying who we are? "Field" is a performance about the tireless fight that something should happen in life. And the disillusionment that if something happens, then it’s not been the right thing. That the more you want to experience the less you experience. A performance that is trying to understand what drives people and how we can engage. A performance with three people who want to engage together. Who believe in the strength of being ‹together› and who finally fail in that wish or that attempt.
