“… one deliciously unpredictable tour de force…” – Heather Desaulniers, Critical Dance

“visually arresting” – Irene Hsiao, SF Weekly

Mine, which premiered in 2013 to critical acclaim, returns to the Joe Goode Annex this December. Born during a residency in Ucross, Wyoming, where the expansive hills, never-ending barbed wire fences, and hints of the Old West left an indelible imprint on Smith and Rein, Mine maps the human urge to control life, exploring our impulse to possess.

Together with collaborators Joel St. Julien (composer), Sean Riley (scenic design), Jim French (lighting design), and Mary Domenico (costume design), RAWdance transforms the unconventional Joe Goode Annex into an elevated playground of ropes, offering an intimate, charged experience for limited houses.

“RAWdance packed enough movement material into its new Mine to tempt lesser choreographers to dilute it into a much longer work than this quintet’s 55 minutes… [It is] an intricately structured, excellently performed essay on some of our less noble instincts.” – Rita Felciano, SF Bay Guardian

“… everything about the fifty-minute work is utterly primal, to the point of animalistic. The very essence of human nature, instinct and emotion is under a honest microscope.” – Heather Desaulniers, Critical Dance

The creation of Mine was made possible thanks to generous support from the Zellerbach Family Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Grants for the Arts/SF Hotel Tax Fund, and many individual donors. Space support was provided by Joe Goode Performance Group.
