Gravity presents the North American Premiere of (in)Visible

Thur-Sun, Oct 3-6 and Oct 10-13 at 8pm

How do you experience a performance? By seeing it? What if that's not possible?
Jess Curtis/Gravity announces the North American premiere of "(in)Visible," a dance/performance dislocating vision from the center of your experience. Developed in collaboration with-and particularly focusing on access to culture for-blind and visually impaired audiences, "(in)Visible" is created and performed by an international cast of six blind, visually impaired and sighted body-based dancers/performers. Through dancing, singing, whispering and feeling, they make their way into your consciousness-bringing experimental dance/performance and sensory accessibility practices into a rich and moving interaction. "(in)Visible" runs two weekends, Thursday to Sunday, October 3-6 and 10-13 at 8:00 pm at CounterPulse in San Francisco. Audio Description is available for every performance. ASL interpretation is available one night per weekend.

Developed in residence at both CounterPulse in San Francisco and at Uferstudios in Berlin, where it premiered July 18, "(in)Visible" furthers Curtis' research into the intersections of movement, culture, sensory difference and physical diversity in live performance. Curtis explains, "Specifically, `(in)Visible' addresses the disproportionate prevalence in our culture of sight as a tool of perception, and explores more diverse modes of perceiving."

Curtis adds, "`(in)Visible' unpacks differences between the ways non-sighted and sighted people experience and imagine a performance or the world and synergize our fragmented sensations into whole perceptions." The work embeds access accommodations -such as Audio Description-into the work itself and will include other non-visual access tools, including non-traditional seating arrangements, pre-show Touch Tours for every show and ASL interpretation for D/deaf audiences.

The set design is by Michiel Keuper, with a sound score by Samuel Hertz.

$10-$30.
