Keith Hennessy/Circo Zero presents
Friday-Saturday, June 1-2, 2018 at 8:00pm
Sinks approach to current politics waivers between punk and contemplative, transformative and fucked. Loneliness, a lifejacket, a white man, a shadow dance, a long angry sad song, and love, suspended.
Keith says, Sink is a personal experiment… I’m feeling fragile and distracted and that’s partly structural. I’m responding to hate and terror, shame and paralysis, the will to survive competing against the urge to implode/explode. I’m reaching in new and old directions, dancing contemplatively, climbing dangerously, singing my guts out, asking too many questions at once: Is freedom a useful concept to motivate dancing? Can a performance be a spell of support for Syrian and Sudanese refugees or victims of fire, hurricane and government betrayal? Is there a non harmful role for the white and male artist? In our need to create contexts for healing, care, and trauma relief, how can I defend artistic provocation or abstract formalism? If the juxtaposition of these questions interests you, please come. Tickets will be cheap and no-one-will-be-turned-away-for-lack-of-money.
Hennessy is white, cis male, queer, immigrant/settler San Franciscan, anarchist, improviser, late 50s, and pissed all of which situate his dancing / imagination.
Collaborators: Marc Kate (music), Jack Davis (costume), Nadine Jessen (costume), Beth Hersh (lights), Grisel Torres (lights)
Duration: approx 60 minutes. The space is wheelchair accessible.
