ODC founders Brenda Way and KT Nelson will answer all your questions this weekend. Sticking to queries about modern dance may be advisable, but do feel free to test their knowledge on astrophysics and ancient Chinese philosophy if the mood strikes. An intimate one-hour performance of ODC’s greatest hits will be fueled by wine and food and a conversation with the mavens behind one of our best local dance companies.
This year’s sampler features Unintended Consequences, which “offers a cutting critique of human relationships and of how easily we become isolated,” says The New York Times. Shifting seamlessly from the floor to the air, Shenanigans is a strong and graceful duet. Grassland captures the energy of nature and transmits it to a dance studio in the Mission, no minor feat.
July 22-23. ODC Theater, 3153 17th Street. Tickets are $20 at 415-863-9834 or odctheater.org.
