ODC Theater presents Hope Mohr Dance

06/09/2016-06/11/2016
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
ODC Theater
San Francisco  

June 9-11, 2016 at 8pm

“Highly experimental and consistently refreshing.”- SF Weekly

Manifesting (World Premiere)
An antic dance theater work inspired by artist manifestos. “Manifesting” builds on Hope Mohr’s long-standing investigation of inherited models as a means to articulate artistic voice.

Stay (2015)
Mohr’s acclaimed response to Francis Bacon’s commitment to subverting narrative in his creative process through the use of “free marks”– throwing paint and other improvisational procedures designed to bring chaos into an otherwise carefully composed canvas. Rather than recreate Bacon’s imagery, “Stay” echoes the impact of a Bacon painting: visceral punch, emotional disturbance.

$30 General Admission.

The Guqin is one of the oldest Chinese stringed instruments with a history of 3,000 years.  The Guqin has long been associated with the ancient scholars.

In 2003, Guqin music was proclaimed as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The music of the Guqin was also featured on the Voyager Golden Record which was launched with the Voyager spacecraft in 1977.  You will find the Guqin music rich and soulful.

The concert is presented by North American Guqin Association (NAGA), a nonprofit cultural arts organization dedicated to the presentation and preservation of Guqin.  The presentation will be bilingual in English and Chinese.

The Fremont Main Library, a branch of the Alameda County Library system, is located at 2400 Stevenson Boulevard and is wheelchair accessible.  The Library will provide an ASL interpreter, for any event with at least seven working days’ notice.

Please call 510-745-1401 or TTY 888-663-0660.
