boulders and bones
Dance can be described as having a kind of temporary permanence. Once it has been illuminated by light, reflected through sound and touched by the body, it develops a profound presence that with a fleeting movement can be borne away. Nothing can or should live forever.
boulders and bones is inspired by the work of sculptor and land artist Andy Goldsworthy, whose own creations interpret the subtle shifts of place and time. Brenda Way and K.T. Nelson’s creation traces the shifting light and changing landscape of the body to reveal the ethereal beauty of singular moments of chaos and clarity. Performed with live music by Erin Wang.
“No ordinary dance company would make a work hymning the transitory existence of what it does, but there’s nothing ordinary about San Francisco’s ODC Dance.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
