In response to Jen Bervin’s exhibition Doing and Undoing, Catharine Clark Gallery, BOXBLUR, and San Francisco Dance Film Festival present a new commissioned dance work by New York-based choreographer Catherine Galasso.
Galasso will present Dances for Doing, an original, site-specific dance in dialogue with Bervin’s exhibition, featuring two distinct duets: one for longtime dancers and collaborators Karla Quintero and Phoenicia Pettyjohn, and another for dancers in training Galicia and Santiago Stack Lozano.
Galasso will employ the form of the duet to create intricate combinations of everyday gesture, resulting in otherworldly forms both familiar and strange that experiment with a range of scale, narrative, and architectural response.
Composer Catherine McRae creates a haunting original score using violin, cello, and kalimba that accompanies Galasso’s choreography.
