Zaccho Dance Theatre presents Between me and the other world
Choreographer, director, and Bay Area performance innovator Joanna Haigood explores issues of race and identity in her performance installation, Between me and the other world, Thursday through Sunday, October 3-6, 2019 at Zaccho Studio in San Francisco.

* Thursday Preview Night is a ticketed benefit open to the public
* Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are FREE community performances

Between me and the other world is a dynamic exploration of scholar and civil rights leader W.E.B. DuBois' seminal work The Souls of Black Folk. This performance installation has been created in collaboration with composer Anthony Brown, media artist David Szlasa, and scenic designer Sean Riley, and performing artists Frankie Lee III, Lydia Clinton, Clarissa Dyas, and Delvis FriƱon. Together, these collaborators have created an immersive environment that evokes the identity duality or double consciousness described by DuBois.

In the performance installation, audiences are welcome to move around the space and view the performance from different vantage points. Performances will loop promptly every 30-minutes on the hour and half hour with performing artists alternating. Audiences may stay for as many performance loops as they like.

David Szlasas media design re-contextualizes DuBois ideas with contemporary imagery sourced from current news and the live performance. Dr. Brown's music draws from DuBois novel The Souls of Black Folk and Dubois references to African Americans deep roots in spirituals, and it traverses the sonic terrain from Spirituals to jazz to 21st century postmodern soundscapes. Sean Riley's set design is a series of moveable scrimmed panels that change the shape of the performing area and provide a dynamic surface for the projected imagery.

Between me and the other world is made possible by generous support from Zellerbach Family Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and San Francisco Grants for the Arts Hotel Tax Fund.
