Deeply embedded in the local dance scene, choreographers Todd Eckert (a member of Robert Moses’ Kin) and Nol Simonse (a dancer with Janice Garrett and Kunst-Stoff) return to Dance Mission Theater with lively and appealing new work, featuring greek goddesses and twelfth century poetry schemas. Your bachelor of arts degree will be so proud.
Simonse’s world premiere is based on the myth of the Greek goddess Demeter, who pits compassion against apathy and, luckily, compassion wins. Multiple dancers will play the goddess, who does her goddess thing to classical and contemporary music.
Dance Mission, November 5-7. Tickets are $20 at 415-273-4633 or brownpapertickets.com.
