United States - Lieder for Two

Date(s) & Time(s): Sunday October 25, 3:00 PM
Duration: 7 minutes without intermission
Location: Eucalyptus Grove Circle
Ticket Prices: $15 - $20

"Lieder for Two" is a site-specific work created for The San Francisco International Arts Festival. As movement and dance spaces have been put on hold, the dancers in the Eucalyptus Grove have a surrealist awakening; Performing for an audience after much absence and, in turn, seeing another dancer in their space. Like birds in a mating dance discovering their own mirrored similarities and differences in another body, the boundary between performance and connection breaks apart. What is instead present is a deep need to communicate more primal needs and be understood by another creature.
