San Francisco: dancing on the edge( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Works by four Bay Area artists: Rinde Eckert, Margaret Jenkins, Joe Goode and Ellen Bromberg. Shorebirds Atlantic, a multidisciplinary piece by Eckert and Jenkins directed by Gino Tanasescu, deals with isolation, chance acquintance and death. In Goode's 29 effeminate gestures, directed by Tim Boxell, the central figure probes the symbolic limbo of his own thoughts. Bromberg's The black dress (also directed by Tanasescu) is inspired by a 1950s portrait of a woman in six poses. Six characters, each wearing the same black dress, perform a dance that deals with restraints, uniformity and escape."
