Jennifer Perfilio Movement Works: Small Dances in the Park
April 9, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Small Dances in the Park: A Picnic of Solos, Duets, and Trios is an outdoor performance of textured, small dances, highlighting process.
Small Dances unpacks the stops and starts of making and sharing public art through the recent transitionary waning of the pandemic. Valuing process, form, and an ethics of solidarity care, Small Dances was created with an intentional indirection, focusing rather on the dynamics between pause and possibility, the accumulation of heartbreaks and unknowns, and the sometimes surprising gifts found amidst loss.
Co-Creators and Performers: Shareen DeRyan, Samuel Melecio-Zambrano, and Phoenicia Pettyjohn. Composer: Clark Buckner. With special thanks to Movement and Text Co-Creator Emma Lanier. Presented in partnership with SF Rec and Parks Department.
Bring a picnic blanket or camp chair if you like.
Current COVID mandates do not require masking or proof of vaccination for outdoor gatherings. Please use your own discretion and comfortability in choosing to mask or distance.
