CounterPulse ignites into the new year
Join us for new artistic works that activate resistance, beauty, and survival
This spring, CounterPulse composes new choreographic protocols in forming a collective persistence. Our vitality is synthesized on and off-screen, in outdoor space, and live-streamed from an unconventional stage near you.
>> Embody hope and mourning with the two evenings of short works in Beyond Gravity 2021 featuring 9 new experimental works by emergent Bay Area artists (Europa Grace, Gabriel Christian, jose e. abad & Gabriel Nuñez de Arco, Abby Crain, Silk Worm, Chibueze Crouch, India Sky, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Rachael Dichter & Allie Hankin) presented by Jess Curtis/Gravity.
>> For the fifth year of the Combustible Residency, alter your perception with Berlin-based intermedia dance company, StratoFyzika and enter a speculative science fiction allegory with techno-voyeur Drag artist, Pseuda with choreographer Kim Ip.
>> Navigate a labyrinth of apocalypse art in colossus by Mica Sigourney & Silk Worm, with stylist Maryam Rostami.
>> Dismantle and build new architectures of affect during the third iteration of the CounterPulse Festival — a week-long awakening of artistic works across the Bay Area.
>> Embrace the spirit of being united in collective thinking, acting, and dancing across global boundaries in Grand re Union LIVE.
Then, rest. Creative resilience demands radical self care.
Join CounterPulse in 2021 as we carve a space for contemporary rituals of movement
