RAWdance’s three co-artistic directors offer two works, including one world premiere, created for the stage and re-envisioned for film. Shadow (part 1), choreographed by Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein, features a quartet of dancers from San Francisco and New York. With commissioned music by Surabhi Saraf, it’s the first section of a multidisciplinary opus exploring identity as constructed through the murky world of our digital footprints.
Rounding out the program is The Healer, choreographed by Katerina Wong in memory of her late aunt, an internationally recognized health and wellness practitioner who integrated Eastern and Western healing modalities. The Healer mines the ancient history, systems and beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine to shed light on humanity’s innate ability to overcome physical and emotional suffering.
