Avy K Productions presents
Red Wind / Ruah Aduma
Thursday-Saturday, April 19-21, 2018 at 8:00pm
Red Wind / Ruah Aduma is a structured improvisation combining dance, visual art, and music in a poetic abstract installation-performance.
Red Wind/Ruah Aduma focuses on the Russian Avant-Garde art movement and how it can shed light on our present and future possibilities. Red Wind continues the search for what is beyond form and what lies beyond the mind, between the sky and the earth exploring the horizon of the possible. Avy K engages with work of artists past while investing in future possibilities of art.

The Feedback Showing 2018
One show only! Saturday, April 28, 8pm
Presented by the Joe Goode Performance Group, The Feedback Showing is about putting pencil to paper and offering up impressions, thoughts and questions about the dance moment just experienced. 5 Feedback Artists have created something deeply important to them, and The Feedback audience plays a crucial role in receiving & responding to their new works. 2018 Artists: Afia Thompson, Alyssandra Wu, Joe Landini, Julie Crothers, and Z Griss.
It’s about listening to others and discovering new voices in the conversation.
It’s about supporting the local dance theater community toward broad investigation and deep feeling.
5 local choreographers were awarded; a modest stipend of hours to rehearse at the Joe Goode Annex, an invitation to a seminar-style workshop day with all of the program participants, Joe Goode and company members, and the final opportunity to present 5 to 7 minutes of choreography at The Feedback Showing.
During The Feedback Showing the audience is afforded a brief pause between works and the materials to write a short feedback note. All the notes are collected and each choreographer takes that feedback home with them.
Come exercise your dance-watching brain and support of innovative choreography!
Chlo & Co Dance presents
The Drove IV
Friday-Saturday, May 11-12, 2018 at 8:00pm
Chlo & Co Dance and the Joe Goode Annex present the Drove IV. Chlo & Co Dance is proud to curate an evening of Bay Area artists unpacking the nuance of human need. The Drove IV features guest work from: bananarama | Call It Art | Jaq H. Dalziel | ReadyMaids | STEAMROLLER Dance Company
Chlo & Co Dance will premier ‘Basic.’ The companys newest project investigates how various needs manifest, resonate, and affect the body. Loosely borrowing from Maslows Hierarchy of Needs, the duo is interested in exploring the differences between individual experience of need and what could be universal. Guest artists join by diving into specific categories of basic human needs.

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.
