Since forming Nancy Karp + Dancers in 1980, Artistic Director Nancy Karp has choreographed more than 80 major works, appearing in venues around the world. Over this time, the company has earned a reputation for striking interdisciplinary collaborations, commissioning numerous composers, visual artists and designers in the creation of new dances. After premiering fly through the night, and land near dawn last year at the Dresher Ensemble Studio in Oakland, Nancy Karp + Dancers is pleased to return to the Taube Atrium in San Francisco.
The company last performed in this space in 1981 when it was the Rotunda of SFMOMA. Karp recalls that at that time it was filled with Frank Stella paintings. The site-specific work her company presented then was an homage to the Rotunda’s architectural features and its function. Karp’s new work, Eppur si muove for seven dancers will respond to the Atrium’s classical volumes and voids.
