Dances With Walls - Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater
Wagner Dance Building
- Dances with (or against) walls is a strategy that San Diego Dance Theater Artistic Director Jean Isaacs has employed to address the overwhelming number of choices presented by site-specific choreography. By dancing against walls, Isaacs creates a two dimensional form out of a three dimensional genre. The human body viewed moving against an unyielding concrete or stone wall challenges the viewer’s emotional responses by eliciting both vulnerability and stoicism. Audiences will be encouraged to use their phones to capture photos and video of the live performance which San Diego Dance Theater will post on their website for a virtual experience of this stunning dance piece.
