Radius

September 11, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

Free
Bending, leaning, and with outstretched arms, an image captures five individuals mid-dance, along a dirt path, dividing a dense and lush forested area.

‘Radius’ is an improvisational performance that uses dance and music to reveal the dichotomies of intimacy and power. Experience the site-specific performance at McEvoy Foundation for the Arts on Saturday September 11 from 2-3pm. Free registration is encouraged for this outdoor event, co-produced with CounterPulse.

‘Radius’ is performed by a group of over thirty experimental dancers and electronic musicians that aims to create a temporary zone governed by collaboration and fluidity rather than hierarchy and structure. Performers are both responsive and generative, with inspiration and influence moving in both directions. The composition is collectively devised, continuously revealing emergent poetics within the stream of images, movements, and sonics. ‘Radius’ arises from research instigated by CounterPulse executive and artistic director Julie Phelps and Marc Kate on the relationship of dance and music to how power and intimacy are brokered in varying forms of social (dis)orders.

CounterPulse provides space and resources for emerging artists and cultural innovators, serving as an incubator for the creation of socially relevant, community-based art and culture. McEvoy Foundation for the Arts presents exhibitions and events that engage, expand, and challenge themes in the McEvoy Family Collection. Rooted in the creative legacies of the Bay Area, McEvoy Arts creates an open, intimate, and welcoming place for contemplation and discussion about art and culture.

This performance is one of several live events organized by McEvoy Arts that amplify the themes of its current exhibit ‘Next to You.’ Featuring artworks from the McEvoy Family Collection, ‘Next to You’ celebrates the joy, vitality, and healing power of the performing arts. Also on view is ‘Hearing Aids,’ a daily screening program of short films guest curated by visual artist and filmmaker Alison O’Daniel that explores expansive understandings of sound and listening. Admission to McEvoy Arts is free.
