We are starting a collaboration with videographer Nathanael Trimbolis creating a duet/solo looking at the ways we hold and find support in intimate relationships juxtaposed with the loneliness we feel when we are left without intimacy. Our starting point is trying to find something beautiful in the ugliness of feeling completely alone. Stay tuned for more info!

reception and performance:
A performance inspired by recent natural disasters and those who have survived.
Date: Wednesday, June 10, 8:30pm
Wednesday, June 17, 8:30pm
Location: 155 Grove Street, SFAC Window Installation Site
The SFAC Gallery presents an evening of music, dance and art in a unique San Francisco setting. Under the early evening sky, we’ll gather on the sidewalk outside Bay Area artist Ernest Jolly’s new installation, Natural Reaction, in front of the SFAC Gallery Window Installation Site. Jolly has created an environment that incorporates elements such as water, wind, sound and light, and is inspired by a post- natural disaster sliver of shoreline. This moody and reflective installation is the perfect setting for a performative engagement.
Jolly invited cellist and multimedia artist Chris Evans and members of ahdanco, a Bay Area modern dance company, to create a new work specifically for his SFAC Gallery installation. Join us for this very special one-night only performance, and then head over to the Main Gallery for beverages and socializing afterwards.
