Choreographer, director, and Bay Area performance innovator Joanna
Haigood explores issues of race and identity in her performance
installation, Between me and the other world, Thursday through Sunday,
October 3-6, 2019 at Zaccho Studio in San Francisco.
Between me and the other world is a dynamic exploration of scholar
and civil rights leader W.E.B. DuBois' seminal work The Souls of Black
Folk. This performance installation has been created in collaboration
with composer Anthony Brown, media artist David Szlasa, and scenic
designer Sean Riley, and performing artists Frankie Lee III, Lydia
Clinton, Clarissa Dyas, and Delvis Friñon. Together, these collaborators
have created an immersive environment that evokes the identity duality
or double consciousness described by DuBois.
In the performance installation, audiences are welcome to move
around the space and view the performance from different vantage points.
Performances will loop promptly every 30-minutes on the hour and half
hour with performing artists alternating. Audiences may stay for as many
performance loops as they like.
Between me and the other world is made possible by generous support
from Zellerbach Family Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett
Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and San Francisco Grants for the Arts
Hotel Tax Fund.
