Join us as we anchor consciousness in flesh and in action
Fabric Animal examines the self as a body-through-time, a psychological and physiological threadwork that leaves poems in its wake.
The embodied kinship of long-time collaborators Sonsherée Giles and Sebastian Grubb blooms through meticulous sensing, daring trust and physical intimacy. Their creative process draws from a deep dedication to internal-sensing movement practices, ensemble thinking, improvisation, and using the lens of sculpture to build living images and costumes.
We invite you into our immersive evening of contemporary dance performance by Sonsherée and Sebastian, featuring original music by local Bay Area composers.
