Megan Lowe Dances presents "Just a Shadow"

SEE EVENT DETAILS
"Just a Shadow," by Megan Lowe Dances, is a performance journey in service to artists who have lost loved ones prematurely. With a title inspired by a poem Artistic Director Megan Lowe's mother wrote shortly before she died, the project stems from Megan's desire to process the loss of her mother and sister through art, and co-create a space of mutual support with collaborators who are also dealing with recent loss. "Just a Shadow" brings together 7 powerful artists-AJ Gardner, Sonsheree Giles, Josh Icban, Megan Lowe, Frances Teves Sedayao, Roel Seeber, and Shira Yaziv-to make 6 distinct duets that highlight the unique strengths and creative modalities of each collaborator, including contemporary dance, site-specific dance, vertical dance, turf dance, contact improvisation, and live music.

Performances are May 31 - June 2 and June 7-9 | Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at The Joe Goode Annex in San Francisco. All showtimes are at 7:30pm. For Pay-What-You-Can tickets, go to: https://www.joegoode.org/event/megan-lowe-dances-presents-just-a-shadow.

This project aspires to nourish the soul, support healing, acknowledge resilience, celebrate life, and honor the memories of loved ones. It welcomes diverse perspectives, cultures, and backgrounds, recognizing that the narratives surrounding death and processing grief are multifaceted and deeply personal. Through dance performance, MLD aims to provide a platform for catharsis, empathy, and collective understanding, fostering connections that transcend individual stories and unite us in a shared journey toward solace and healing.

The San Francisco Chronicle writes of Lowe's recent work, "The whole evening holds together with a well-hewn emotional arc, a strong sense of form and meaningful variation, and terrific organic use of the whole theater space... Lowe also has a delightful penchant for surprise."

MLD is the featured artist of Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center's 27th Annual United States of Asian America Festival.

Pay-What-You-Can.
