Finally, this week, SFIAF will present the US Premiere of the globally acclaimed performance piece, FRE!HEIT by German choreographer David Brandstätter in collaboration with American mezzo-soprano, Michelle Jacques.
FRE!HEIT (freedom in English) is a treatise on the multiple meanings of, and negotiations around, the concept of freedom. Brandstätter negotiates time and space in fragile suspension, balanced on white porcelain cups that he deploys into allegorical constellations on the stage. Simultaneously and in response/juxtaposition, Jacques narrates, sings and sermonizes from a repurposed pulpit as the pair transform FRE!HEIT into a dynamic, thought-provoking, text-driven multidisciplinary duet.
The San Francisco performances of FRE!HEIT were supported by the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ, International Guest Performance Fund for Dance, which is funded by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media; the Institut Français Paris and Région Normandie; WESTAF; Goethe Institut San Francisco and the German Consulate in San Francisco.
FREIHEIT is presented through CounterPulse’s curated Co-Production Program. CounterPulse is building a movement of risk-taking art that shatters assumptions and builds community. For more information, please visit counterpulse.org
