Slithering Forward 

Wednesday, Nov 6 2013

Mid-November brings us well down the vertebrae of a black snake year, predicted to be one of social, political, and personal upheaval and renewal — a year too slippery to define, a year of shedding the old and embracing the unknown. Dancer/choreographer Peiling Kao, musician/composer Jason Hoopes, and writer/artist Karl Jensen toe the lines between their respective mediums to bring a collaborative evening of reflections on the possibilities, power, and consequences of transformation. "Year of the Snake" touches on traumatic loss, birth, death, solitude, and our tremendous need for compassion and empathy. Four dancers and 12 musicians perform fear and anticipation, renewal and demise, abandonment, nostalgia, breathlessly tumbling into the untried future. It's a year to tread lightly. It's a year to be bold. Come to practice productive forgetting.
