Continuing their string of hit collaborations including The Experience of Flight in Dreams, StringWreck and The Illustrated Book of Invisible Stories, internationally recognized Bay Area choreographers Janice Garrett and Charles Moulton return from a sold out European tour to present their newest co-created dance theater work, Angles of Enchantment. Featuring dance, live music, and a whimsical theatrical landscape, the evening-length piece explores the human need to experience states of wonder in a time of increasing disenchantment and alienation.
Angles of Enchantment follows the journey of four dancers, including Tanya Bello, Carolina Czechowska, Tegan Schwab, and Nol Simonse, as they take on the malaise of modernity to affirm the transformative power of imagination and its capacity to free the human spirit from despair. Garrett and Moulton’s high-octane choreography is amplified by the contributions of Bay Area designer Margaret Hatcher whose sculptural, 3-dimensional designs and larger-than-life costumes propel the work through contrasting worlds of colorful exuberance and stark isolation and animate a series of characters, both real and imagined. Well-known San Francisco composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Whitehead performs original music live on stage using a variety of fantastical, self-made instruments.
Performance dates and times are as follows: Saturday, November 24, 8PM; Sunday, November 25, 2PM and 7:30PM; Thursday, November 29, 8PM; Friday, November 30, 8PM; Saturday, December 1, 2PM and 8PM; Sunday, December 2, 2PM and 7:30PM.
