Lies You Can Dance To
Flyaway Productions previews LIES YOU CAN DANCE TO, a new dance work co-presented by The Marsh and ODC. The piece responds to the absence of truth in American political culture. By investigating how the human body responds to lies told over and over at the level of national policy, the performance explores the bending of democracy that currently surrounds us and how that resonates kinesthetically in the bodies of its citizens.  

Flyaway Productions performs apparatus-based dances that expose the range and power of female physicality. Founded in 1996, the company's performances integrate risk, spectacle and social potency. The dances build on physical athleticism and images of female power. The company performs in both traditional and site-specific venues, including rooftops, fire escapes and industrial cranes. Flyaway has performed at the Boston Dance Umbrella's International Aerial Festival, San Francisco's Skydancers Festival, the Aerial Dance Festival in Colorado and locally at Brava Theater Center, Theater Artaud, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Described by the New York Times as "a wonder of equilibrium," Artistic Director Jo Kreiter is a San Francisco-based dancer/choreographer with a background in political science. Through dance she is seeking to engage imagination, physical innovation and the political conflicts we live within. Kreiter is a recipient of a 2003 Rockefeller/ MAP grant, a 2003 Public Art Commission form the SF Arts Commission, a 2002 Wattis Residency at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, a 2001 CA Dancemakers Fellowship, a 2000 Gerbode Foundation Award for Choreography, and a San Francisco Bay Guardian 2000 GOLDIE Award. She is one of a few women worldwide to have gained expertise in the art of Chinese pole acrobatics.
