WHO: The Anata Project
WHAT: Presents Crooked Little Hearts
WHEN: October 19 and 20 at 8pm
WHERE: Dance Mission Theater
Artistic director Claudia Anata Hubiak presents the world premiere “Crooked Little Hearts” in an evening of dance that explores the nuances of intimacy and the human body’s reaction to connection. Together, these solos, duets, and trios reveal a commentary on the diverse nature of human relationships. They portray our need to escape from closeness, the friction inherent in partnership, and the difference between dependency and deep connectivity. Informed by Hubiak’s Buddhist upbringing, Crooked Little Hearts addresses the desire for balance and mindfulness amidst chaos. The piece looks at love and longing, intimacy and vulnerability with movement that explores the “off balance” “off centered” and even “unhinged”. By bringing tenderness and risk to partnered movement, this new work from The Anata Project exposes the crooked sweetness of the human heart.
Tickets are available via brown paper tickets.
