Drawing inspiration from the feminist battle cry, "Nevertheless, she persisted," Nevertheless is a collaboration with the Bay Area's all-women Cat Call Choir, surveying the field of gender-based harassment from the subtle to the violent, in a marriage of song and dance, comedy and horror.
Organized in a series of 16 vignettes of varying length, Nevertheless interweaves the companies of Cat Call Choir and ka*nei*see | collective in an exploration of forms of harassment that will feel familiar to some and frightening to others.
Work on Nevertheless began in 2016 before Elizabeth Warren's brusque silencing on the Senate floor, and well before the #MeToo movement gathered steam over the last four months. Responding to a work-in-progress showing last year, Heather Desaulniers wrote for Critical Dance:
"While indeed a heavy work, Chianese also cleverly injected moments of humor, like the Dance Theater-inspired smiling sequences. And moments of hope. The most significant observation for me...was the eye towards sisterhood and shared understanding."
The dancers in Nevertheless include Clarissa Dyas, Mallory Markham, Madeline Matuska, Rebecca Morris, Emma Salmon and Vera Schwegler. The vocalists of Cat Call Choir include Heather Arnett, Funmi Awopetu, Mika Banks, Blair Bodie, Chelsea Brown, Rosanna Chiu, Mercilee Jenkins, Celine Alwyn Parker, Bhumi Patel and Ali Toia. The creative team includes lighting designer Linda Baumgardner and costume designer Carol Salmon.
$20 - $35.
