DREAM #2, When Fire Visits Us, Visual Poem by Adrian Arias.

May 21st and 22nd 2016, Fort Mason Center for the Arts, San Francisco.

Fire is chosen in this new performance by Adrián Arias, which explores the poetic-conceptual and destructive burden that this element carries.

Influenced by his last years of experience in the laboratory of scores by Anna Halprin, Adrian has created a series of 12 scores-performances that tell us how fire can live within us to give us life.

Visual artist, poet and performer Adrián Arias, creates his new Visual-Poem-performance working in collaboration with dancer-performer from Anna Halprin’s Wednesday Scoring Lab, Amelia Uzastegui, and special guests in flamenco: internationally renowned and Isadora Duncan awardee La Tania and Clara Rodriguez, award winning dancer-acrobat Zoë Klein, and singers Dina Zarif and Anaís Azul.

With live music by STRINGQUAKE: Amelia Romano, Harp; Misha Khalikulov, cello; Josh Mellinger, cajón, tabla and percussion. The music includes a choral piece specially composed by Anais Azul, and an original arrangement of Stravinsky’s Firebird by Schuyler Karr.

Show dedicated to Anna Halprin, for her teachings and wisdom.
