Thank you to everyone who supported us in Riverside at The Box, in SF at Joe Goode Annex, and in Santa Monica at Highways Performance Space! We appreciate your support for us in 2018!

counterpoint/shift (re-boot) reflects a weekly process with local Riverside dancers. This practice involves solo, duet, and ensemble work in the form of improvisational scores and every now and again, a sharing of some of the choreographies created by the linking together of the scores. This work relies upon the “close read” of several movement skills that become the central theme of a score. Each dancer offers their input to fine-tune and shape a piece.

Collaboration and Improvisation: Rosa Rodriguez-Frazier, Tracy Tom-Hoon, Megan Fowler-Hurst, Irvin Manuel Gonzalez, Edwin Sigüenza, Elizabeth Villalobos, Stephen Tanner

Collaborators: Ariel Green-Hill, Rebekah Johnson Guerra, and C.J. Logel

Artistic Direction: Sue Roginski
