OtherDANCE is a new dance/perf/install/film fest for the bay area. OtherDANCE uses the body and presence as medium, makes acquaintance with technologies, includes the options of audience and performer overlap, and installs dance – as an object of art, into these gallery settings. OtherDANCE is the first two Saturdays in May. OtherDANCE takes place at Warehouse 1310 (May 6) & Lobot Gallery (May 13). Choreographers/dancers all herald from the sister cities of SF, Oakland and NYC.

=============================================

 

What is “other” dance?

 

Held in similar regard as, but not limited to, alternative dance. This festival provides a ground for contemporary dance to be taken and explored as an art form free from the potential expectations of a general dance audience. The festival takes place in large loft/like gallery spaces, forcing participants, both performer & audience, to acknowledge one another and their apparent/inherent relationship. No formal separation is imparted regarding such roles in this complex and rich relationship. Dance in a sense happens throughout the night, as if installed into the gallery. Dances continue throughout the evening in different spaces, sometimes dances overlap, though they remain fundamentally sovereign to their designated spaces as chosen by the choreographer. The dance itself is allowed to breathe a bit, as aspects of its form and/or content are exposed, exaggerated and/or eclipsed through its placement in this unconventional performance space. A triangulating relationship between audience, performer, and the dance plays with their respected roles of objectivity and subjectivity, participating, relating, and reacting to all respective combinations.

 

 

ART IS DANCE.
