Hope Mohr Dance’s Bridge Project, in association with Counterpulse, presents Rewriting Dance
Featuring Deborah Hay, Jeanine Durning, Alva Noë, Michèle Steinwald and ten local artists
Rewriting Dance has moved! All evening performances will be held at Joe Goode Annex. The workshop will be held at San Francisco Conservatory of Dance. Tickets should still be purchased through CounterPulse, and tickets purchased prior to venue change will be redeemed.
Rewriting Dance explores the intersection of language and choreographic thinking through a full weekend of workshop and performance. Featuring Deborah Hay, a pioneer in experimental, question-based choreography; Jeanine Durning, Hay’s longtime collaborator; Minneapolis-based curator Michéle Steinwal, UC Berkeley Professor Alva Noë, and ten local artists.
NOV 6, FRI at 8PM: Jeanine Durning’s inging – The practice of unscripted nonstop language as performance. Part spoken word performance, part reverie, part dance, part oral biography, part mediation and psychotherapy, inging is a choreography of the mind, moving in the continuous present. Tickets for Friday night are SOLD OUT.
NOV 7, SAT at 6PM: Reorganizing Ourselves – This evening features two 60-minute performative lectures: A Continuity of Discontinuity by choreographer Deborah Hay and See me if you can! by Alva Noë, philosopher, cognitive scientist, and research associate for William Forsythe’s Motion Bank. The two lectures will be followed by a participatory salon-style think tank discussion facilitated by dance curator Michèle Steinwald. A unique, multidisciplinary event with three leading thinkers about contemporary performance. TICKETS >>
