ODC/Dance is the West Coast’s most acclaimed contemporary dance company, known for their remarkable athleticism, sparkling wit, and intellectually stimulating social commentary. In Artistic Director Brenda Way and Co-Director KT Nelson's inimitable style, they have produced a season of dance that matters on a grand and intimate scale. This year at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts they will explore themes of the cycles of life, the current affairs of state, lifelong love, homeland insecurity, and the metaphor of life portrayed as a house - all in a season comprising three dance programs, eleven terrific dancers, and five world premieres. Accompanying this season of new work will be music by Meredith Monk, Laurie Anderson, the red hot Argentinean composer Osvaldo Golijov, and electronic wizards Brian Eno and David Byrne, to name a few.
