Check out the DIGITAL PROGRAM HERE.
Shadow (part 1), choreographed by Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein, brings a quartet of dancers from San Francisco and New York for the first chapter premiere of this deep dive into our digital debris and data-defined identities. With a soundscore by Surabhi Saraf, set design by Chad Owens, lighting by Del Medoff, and cinematography by Ben Estabrook, Shadow (part 1) digs into the reverberations of surveillance, digital tracking, and feedback loops of/on the body to create a tenebrous world on screen. Part 2 of Shadow will premiere next year as a gallery installation combining film, augmented reality, and live performance.
Much celebrated, The Healer (2021), choreographed by Katerina Wong, also returns to the screen. In memory of Wong’s late aunt, The Healer mines the ancient history, systems, and beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine to shed light on humanity’s innate ability to overcome suffering. Praised for its “meditative marriage of somatics and mindfulness,” showcasing “beautiful shapes…shared vocalization…[and] powerful unison sequences” (Heather Desaulniers for CriticalDance), The Healer features an ensemble of four dancers, each drawing on their own ancestries and visions of female strength.
For blind and visually impaired audience members, RAWdance partners with Gravity Access Services to offer audio described versions of our videos. Audio description is an audio track spoken by a professional audio describer to audience members with visual impairments to provide clear and engaging descriptions of the meaningful visual details of a video.
