Drawing on our university's mission of personal and social transformation, CIIS Public Programs released a call for bay area performers of all types interested in presenting new and existing work in response to the concept of Performance as Resistance. This event features two of the selected performers who applied to the call earlier this year.

In times of protest, the works artists create are often a reflection of, and contribution to, resistance efforts. This evening explores the intersection of performing arts and resistance with two short dance pieces, followed by conversations with their creators about their process, the meaning behind the movements, and more.

Hope Mohr Dance presents an excerpt from Precarious, a dance inspired by the passing of the last industrial blacksmith shop in San Francisco. The performance was created by Hope Mohr as a protest against San Francisco's gentrification boom as a threat to the city's identity as a progressive, inclusive place accessible to a wide variety of artists and artisans.

Heather Stockton presents a new dance work investigating how the body is weathered by the deluge of "emergency" and "breaking development" news stories, and the resulting questions about resistance. In this piece, she responds to the question: How is a body most effective at performing resistance in this time?

Pre-registration - $10
