A free public performance of the Rotunda Dance Series will be held at noon, Friday, March 1 at San Francisco City Hall.
The performance is hosted by a partnership between Dancers’ Group and World Arts West with San Francisco’s Grants for the Arts and San Francisco City Hall.
The first performance of the 2013 season will be ODC/Dance in “Transit,” choreographed by ODC Co-Artistic Director KT Nelson. This full company work celebrates the chaotic pulse of our urban centers – where high and low technology exist side-by-side – walking, biking, and high-speed transit.
Dancing with three custom built bicycles by mechanical engineer and artist Max Chen and a restless score by Nico Muhly, “Transit” rides through the shape of a day: a coffee fix, the commute, lunch, and the evening return home.
The high profile Rotunda Dance Series brings many of the Bay Area’s most acclaimed dance companies to San Francisco City Hall’s rotunda space for free noon-time performances taking place the first Friday of each month. Events primarily involve dance, but often also include live music, theater or other performing art disciplines.
The 2013 Rotunda Dance Series will continue on Friday, April 5 with the San Francisco Ballet School Trainee Program, a pre-professional program comprised of students chosen from the School’s most advanced level.
