Fans of choreographer Yuri Zhukov may be unaware of his lifelong gift for painting, but Zhukov's multiple talents will be evident on Saturday, Sept. 21, at Catharine Clark Gallery — the art space that recently moved from its downtown San Francisco location to Potrero Hill. It's there that Zhukov Dance Theatre will do a "pop-up performance" that utilizes the gallery's new digs to debut a work. Zhukov's dancers will twist and contort their bodies to the music of percussionist Andrew Meyerson and guitarist Travis Andrews. Zhukov, meanwhile, has painted more than 50 works to raise money for his San Francisco dance company, putting the paintings of curious figures up for online auction. The Catharine Clark Gallery event is a chance to see the acclaimed Zhukov Dance Theatre a month before its SFJAZZ Center debut on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30, and a chance to check out the gallery's new quarters, which occupy a former door factory. Zhukov Dance Theatre has a reputation for dances that stir the senses. When you add art and music, the night should produce the kind of magic that every artist (and art-goer) lives for.
