DISCO RIOT & FACT/SF co-present PORT: SF/SD
PORT: SF/SD is a shared evening of premieres by contemporary dance companies FACT/SF (San Francisco) and DISCO RIOT (San Diego). These performances mark DISCO RIOT’s San Francisco debut and will be followed by another shared evening of both groups in San Diego in early 2023. DISCO RIOT and FACT/SF are working together as part of PORT, a reciprocal touring model that supports artistic exchange and creates opportunities to present visiting artists to local audiences.
DISCO RIOT’s Ex Nihilo, choreographed by Zaquia Mahler Salinas, features an original sound score by Jonny Tarr, is informed by excerpts of lectures from Alan Watts, and draws from channeling creative source. Latin for “out of nothing”, Ex Nihilo is a meditative quintet about what it takes to make something-from-nothing-ness.
FACT/SF’s newest work, For a, is a surrealist and virtuosic trio choreographed by Charles Slender-White and set to Tchaikovsky’s epic Violin Concerto in D major.
These performances make up Weekend 2 of the 2022 FACT/SF Summer Dance Festival. The Festival brings together an array of contemporary dance works by choreographers from the Bay Area and beyond.
