Cid Pearlman’s dance work “Fire Sale” will be in the Los Angeles premiere of the California Touring Project this weekend.
As many of you know, Cid is my daughter. I was struggling to describe her work and realized that this quote from California Dance Network does it better.
With a movement vocabulary that shifts between a rough-and-tumble physicality, intricate partnering, and moments of delicate touch, Cid Pearlman’s choreography subtly disrupts traditional notions of desire, gender, and friendship.
And here’s a critic’s comment on the California Touring Project:
“From beginning to end, words and movement flow seamlessly within the California Touring Project. Witty and provocative, the project presents physical storytelling that leaves you with a sense of compassion and humanity.” –Kris Eitland, Sandiego.com
The Los Angeles Premiere of California Touring Project brings together casebolt and smith (Los Angeles), Cid Pearlman (Santa Cruz), Susan Rose (Los Angeles) and Yolande Snaith (San Diego) to present a collection of dances that play between order, disorder, power and desire. Presented in the round, each work inhabits an intimate landscape creating playful and unexpected shifts of perspective and meaning. Now in its second year, The California Touring Project was created as a way to build community and create touring opportunities in these times of diminished resources for dance. The response received from audiences and presenters to the project has been extraordinary. Past performances include CounterPulse San Francisco and Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.
