Community Music Center, 544 Capp St, SF

West Wave 26 will focus on a specific genre of music: nocturnes. Originally, a nocturne referred to a piece of music played for an evening party. Today, the familiar form is a single-movement piece inspired by the night. We intend to present the public with an evening of nocturnes that contrast or comment on our wakeful, busy, and often over-stimulating lives, while bringing to light what is normally covered by darkness.
Choreographers involved in West Wave 26 must choreograph dances set to an existing, deconstructed/reconstructed, or freshly composed nocturne. Music should be played live, if possible. The festival will be held at the Community Music Center in San Francisco, a space which is setup for acoustic instruments. Please note that the Community Music Center has two grand pianos and a sound system. WW 26 will consider electronic music, but preference will be given to choreographers who are presenting work with a live musician(s) playing an acoustic instrument.
