The Observatory is an eclectic collection of dance-theater performances that tumble through the history of humanity’s relationship to the sky and the myriads of projections cast upon it. The performers manipulate all the lights and sound from onstage as well as mix improvisation and tightly choreographed material with a constant interest in change and the process of perceptual and conceptual reorganization.
The Million Underscores, known for their formal experiments in performance, their lavish visual worlds, and their ad hoc methodology, bring to ODC San Francisco performances that they have developed throughout the past 6 years in different art, dance, and theater spaces in New York City. This project, sprung from experiments in extending attention into the “far-out,” now has become the company’s first out-of-town engagement.
