Bay Area Premiere!
YBCA is proud to co-commission an exciting new work from David Roussève/REALITY, one of the most important voices to emerge in contemporary American dance in recent history. An ode to those transcendental moments when joy and sorrow collide, Saudade—a Portuguese word close to “bittersweet”—is a compelling mix of theater, spoken dialogue, contemporary dance and the movement of Indonesia, India and West Africa. Unifying the work is Fado, often called “Portuguese blues,” which expresses the longing of saudade. Equal parts wild humor and grit, Saudade is a rare work of spiritual seeking that connects the African American experience to pressing global issues.
