CHANGE presented by Fog Beast and Dance Up Close/East Bay
Fog Beast and Dance Up Close/East Bay present CHANGE, from November 13th  Nov. 22nd, 2015 at the intimate Shawl-Anderson Dance Center in Berkeley.

CHANGE is Fog Beast's latest dance theater work exploring the personal, scientific and psychological dimensions of local climate change with a mash up of original live music and contemporary dance-theater.

Fog Beast directors Melecio Estrella and Andrew Ward along with composer Ben Juodvalkis are delving into the realities and dreams of climate change in the Bay Area.  With advising from Dr. Andrew Jones, a respected climate scientist and the deputy director of the Climate Readiness Institute, Fog Beast's CHANGE will bridge the hard science of climate data with the personal stories that play out in a world where accelerating change is the new normal. Award winning scenic and lighting designer Heather Basarab is creating the environment within which CHANGE will unfold.

Fog Beast performers in CHANGE: Andrew Ward, Melecio Estrella, Ben Juodvalkis, Caroline Alexander and Kristen Greco

Fog Beast illuminates the modern trappings of the human animal through research, performance, and education in the arts. Fog Beast supports the telling of diverse and relevant stories, aiming to create connectivity and meaningful art experiences.

Directed by Melecio Estrella and Andrew Ward, Fog Beast has offered impactful live art experiences since 2009. Coming from the fertile tradition of hybrid dance theater that the Bay Area nurtures (Estrella and Ward have worked as performers for over a decade with Joe Goode, BANDALOOP, and Scott Wells, among others), they continue to find new ways to mix choreography, improvisation, voice, text, song, and story. Fog Beast has been presented in such venues as Yerba Buena Center For the Arts, The Joe Goode Annex, and Shawl-Anderson Dance Center among others.

Dance Up Close/East Bay (DUC) was conceived by former SADC Program Director, Jill Randall, and offers Bay Area audiences a local space to see professional dance performances in the East Bay. DUC aims to serve emerging and mid-career choreographers by providing a low-cost, low-risk, strongly supported opportunity to present a full evening of work in an intimate community setting. CHANGE is the 16th presentation since the program's inception in 2008.

Shawl-Anderson Dance Center (SADC) is a non-profit organization founded in 1958 by Frank Shawl and Victor Anderson. SADC is committed to nurturing and mentoring the growth of dancers and choreographers; cultivating a healthy and supportive atmosphere for creative expression; sustaining traditions essential to excellence in the field; and fostering the evolution of the art of dance. www.shawl-anderson.org
