For RAWdance, recently named "Best Dance Company" by 48 Hills and the San Francisco Bay Guardian, the company's three artistic directors unite for TRIPLE TAKE, an eclectic trio of new works. Wendy Rein and Ryan T. Smith present part I of 'Shadow,' a deep dive into the data "debris" we leave behind and how it reflects on what makes us human.
'The Healer,' a premiere by Katerina Wong, mines the ancient history, systems and beliefs of traditional Chinese medicine to shed light on our innate ability to overcome physical and emotional suffering.
For the final piece in the program, all three choreographers join forces on a new work that uses the Surrealist "exquisite corpse" drawing game as a framework for their creative process. Rein and Smith, working as a pair and using video conferencing from NY, and Wong working in the studio in San Francisco, take turns building material without seeing each others' previous contributions. In this exploration of process and communication, the company embraces uncertain territory and new possibilities to creation.
