UPDATE MARCH 2020
It is with deep disappointment that we announce that TRIPLE TAKE has been postponed following the recommendations from Mayor London Breed and the SF Department of Public Health, which suggested aggressive measures to help prevent community transmission of COVID-19. We strongly value your dedication to supporting the company and recognize these measures may feel extreme, however we are committed to putting the health of our community first, and feel it’s important to follow the city’s recommendations. These are uncharted waters for us as a community arts organization, and we are grateful for the encouragement and understanding of everyone who has worked so hard to develop this production and all of you who planned to attend.
About TRIPLE TAKE
Join RAWdance for their first season after expanding to two coasts, featuring three world premieres by three Artistic Directors.
For RAWdance’s first season after expanding to two coasts, the company’s three Artistic Directors, Wendy Rein, Ryan T. Smith, and Katerina Wong, reunite for an eclectic trio of new works.
Rein and Smith premiere the first phase of Shadow, a deep dive into our murky, expanding digital footprints, and what it might mean for the future as each click, search, and download creates an alternate identity that is bought and sold. The piece will be created in collaboration with Brooklyn-based composer Surabhi Saraf, founder of the Centre for Emotional Materiality.
The Healer, a premiere by Wong, mines the ancient history, systems, and beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine and holistic practices, to shed light on a human’s innate ability to overcome physical and emotional suffering. Created in memory of her aunt, a Doctor of Energy Medicine, the work features a powerhouse quartet of female dancers, and an original sound composition by Daniel Berkman.
For the final piece in the program, all three Artistic Directors join forces on a new work that utilizes the Surrealist “exquisite corpse” drawing game as a framework for their creative process. Rein and Smith, working as a pair and using video conferencing from NY, and Wong working in the studio in SF, take turns building material without seeing each others’ previous contributions. In this exploration of process and communication, the company embraces uncertain territory and new possibilities to creation.
