"Between Me and the Other World" performance installation based on W.E.B. DuBois

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Choreographer, director and Bay Area performance innovator Joanna Haigood will explore issues of race and identity in the world premiere of her new performance installation, "Between Me and the Other World", Friday through Sunday, November 1 through 3 from 1 to 5 pm at Zaccho Studio, 1777 Yosemite Avenue, Studio 330, in San Francisco. A dynamic exploration of scholar and civil rights leader W.E.B. DuBois' concept of "double consciousness", the performance installation has been created in collaboration with composer Anthony Brown, media artist David Szlasa, scenic designer Sean Riley and performing artists Jetta Martin, Raissa Simpson, Rashidi Omari and Matthew Wickett, who together have created an immersive environment that evokes the identity duality experienced by many people of color.

In the performance installation audiences are welcome to move around the space and view the performance from different vantage points. The performances will loop approximately every 30-minutes with performing artists alternating. David Szlasa's media design re-contextualizes Dubois' ideas with contemporary imagery sourced from current news and the live performance. Dr. Brown's music draws from Dubois' novel The Souls of Black Folks and Dubois' references to African American's deep roots in spirituals, and it traverses the sonic terrain from Spirituals to jazz to 21st century postmodern soundscapes. Sean Riley's set design is a series of moveable scrimmed panels that change the shape of the performing area and provide a dynamic surface for the projected imagery.
