2019 Summer Dance Festival
Curated by FACT/SF Artistic Director, Charles Slender-White, the second annual FACT/SF Summer Dance Festival brings together four stylistically-diverse contemporary dance works, each one a world premiere. FACT/SF will present their own work alongside local dance companies tinypistol and dazaun.dance, and visiting artists, joyproject- Joy Davis (Boston) and Eric Mullis (Charlotte).
Davis and Mullis will perform Halidom, which will include original sound and movement scores developed in response to their travels in Japan and study of Butoh. While in Japan, Davis and Mulls will study directly with Yoshita Ohno, a Butoh master teacher and the son of Butoh co-founder, Kazuo Ohno. Kerr will premiere a duet, my beloved comet, which imagines our love amidst the cosmos, futurity, and liberation. Soleyn’s solo work, a message of truths, works to cultivate a space in which one can simply be enough. Slender-White’s new quintet, BackstitchBack, is the first iteration of his multi-year project on the repetitive and looping nature of memory formation and memory loss.
