Experience the polar regions as never before through the eclectic artistry of composer, author, musician, and 2014 National Geographic Emerging Explorer Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky. Revered in the hip-hop world as a master turntablist, DJ Spooky has undertaken expeditions to Antarctica to explore the impact of climate change and create acoustic portraits of the rapidly changing continent. Arctic Rhythms resulted from a 2014 trip to the Arctic Circle sponsored by the Sierra Club. In this performance, DJ Spooky projects images of the arctic landscape onstage and juxtaposes them with live and recorded hip-hop, electronic, and minimalist music. He will be accompanied by the popular San Francisco-based Del Sol String Quartet.
Stacey Printz / Printz Dance Project
How does the new social-media-driven reality affect partnerships, friendships, and love? What does voyeurism do to human interactions? How do we create true intimacy and make personal imprints on one another if there is always a swath of plastic between us? Printz Dance Project’s GLASSlands invites audiences to engage with a transparent, inflatable world envisioned by choreographer/director Stacey Printz and set designer Sean Riley. The set pieces are large pod-like structures, or “bubble rooms,” a plastic world that dancers populate and explore. Audiences become voyeurs as they watch vignettes unfold, witnessing what happens when two dancers duet without being able to touch, or when dancers in different pods attempt to “communicate” through the veil of these clear igloo-like structures. In exploring our obstructed attempts at authentic communication, GLASSlands uses dance as a conduit for deepening interpersonal relationships and compassion for our similarities and differences, making way for tangible change.
