Location change! Intercontinental Collaborations #6 will now be held at Gray Area Art & Technology. Tickets should still be purchased through CounterPulse.

Gravity celebrates 15 years of ground-breaking interdisciplinary performance in San Francisco with Intercontinental Collaborations #6, our sixth biennial presentation of new and classic collaborations with long time conspirators Claire Cunningham (Scotland) and Jörg Müller (France).

From Glasgow, Montpelier and Berlin to San Francisco, revisit some of our favorite excerpts from Gravity’s history and future featuring: Performance Research Experiment #1, Les Tubes – mobile, and a preview ofThe Way You Look (at me) Tonight, a duet in development by Cunningham and Curtis in consultation with Alva Noë.

“Globalism in economics is the pits. But in the arts it can work fabulously: artists bring their various perspectives to projects, cross-­‐pollinate each others’ ideas, and discover commonalities and differences. Jess Curtis/Gravity’s ‘Intercontinental Collaborations’ offers a glimpse of what’s possible.” RITA FELCIANO, SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN
