GERALD CASEL DANCE / NOT ABOUT RACE DANCE Gerald Casel, in collaboration with dance artists Styles Alexander, Audrey Johnson, Karla Quintero, and Cauveri Suresh, will premiere their latest work, Not About Race Dance , Dec 2-11 at CounterPulse in San Francisco. Not About Race Dance critiques the unmarked predominance of whiteness in US postmodernism. It cites Neil Greenberg’s Not About AIDS Dance to connect the silence around the AIDS epidemic and the unac- knowledged racial politics of postmodern dance. Occupying a space defined by white artists, it contests the structural endurance of white postmodernity by disidentifying with the white cube activated by Trisha Brown’s Locus and asks how difference can be made visible through choreographic structures that historically do not make space for brown and black bodies.

Printz Dance Project Nov 4-6, 11-13 at Joe Goode Annex

Through personal text, storytelling, and dance, Ink and Bone centers on the experience of living with chronic pain. As a win- dow into one person’s journey, this piece hopes to be a conduit to the universality of these often hidden experiences. This is an honest, at times heartbreaking, at times humorous, and consis- tently vulnerable exploration.

Megan Lowe Dances presents Tangram

Arenas Dance Company Nov 5, 6, 7 at Z Space, SF ADA ARA is based on the tale Ochun Ada Ara – She Who Would Be Queen, in which the Yoruba deity Ochun takes away the crown of Changó to make a point: the world cannot be without women. Presented by CubaCaribe, with choreography by Susana Arenas Pedroso, the work pays homage to female orishas and celebrates Cuban women. Funded in part by the Gerbode Foundation.

Dec 9-12, 2021 at the Joe Goode Annex, Thu/Sun at 7pm & Fri/Sat at 8pm Tangram is a dynamic dance between Megan Lowe and Brenton Cheng that challenges ideas of male/female duets. Using physics/momentum, Brenton and Megan lift/are lifted equally, leveling the playing field and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. As artists with Chinese ancestry, they deconstruct tropes often associated with Chinese heritage. Learn more
