Award-winning choreographer/directors Janice Garrett and Charles Moulton will present the premiere of A Show of Hands--a New Music USA commission of a new, site-specific performance event that explores touch, gesture and the infinite expressive powers and possibilities of the human hand-- in six performances October 17 through 26 in the Pottruck Family Atrium of the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco.

"We believe that performance should help to generate a sense of community," observe Garrett and Moulton. "So we decided to present A Show of Hands in a locale that is actively engaged in the pursuit of offering creative and spiritual opportunities to hands, hearts and minds and supports a large and dynamic population at different times of the day. We are overjoyed to be presenting our work at the JCCSF."
