Outside the box

If there's one thing that characterizes a LEVYdance performance, it is the company's desire to challenge the gaze of the proscenium stage, whether it means putting dance in the alleyway outside its studio on Heron Street or leading audience members from room to room in the General's Residence at Fort Mason in last November's creative staging of ROMP. Their quest to defamiliarize dance continues in SOAR, which empties Z Space of its risers and uses the former cannery as a shifting set for audience and dancers alike, culminating in what they describe as a “choose your own adventure” experience, in which audience members will create their own narratives by selecting from simultaneous scenarios as they move freely through the venue. SOAR is the first work choreographed and directed by LEVYdance associate director Scott Marlowe, fresh from the success of starring in the 2013 dance film Test.
