City of Ghosts, a new dance piece by Joe Landini, is a series of recollections of his past 30 years living in San Francisco, where he reflects, “I’m fascinated with how unreliable memory is and how quickly cities change. I’m constantly trying to keep up with the changes, but I’m trapped by how I remember them.” This five-part dance piece has sections where the dancers guide the audience members through a meditation on loss and fractured memories. The athletic movement in City of Ghosts was inspired by the resilience and adaptations people need in order to deal with gentrification.
