Just Ahead is Darkness
October 26, 2019
8pm, Counterpulse, San Francisco
S&F is creating a performance for this year's SoundWaveSF festival. Just Ahead is Darkness will be an evening of episodic performance inspired by how time transforms the relationships between fact, story, and truth. We are thrilled to have author Ben Loory joining us as a guest performer. If you don't know Ben's work, you can listen to him read several stories on This American Life.

This new piece will be an evening-length narrative work that uses dance, live music, spoken text, and audience participation to explore how family histories become ingrained in our imaginations and bodies through storytelling. The piece is inspired by the tradition of bon dances in Hawaii. Bon dances are part of a traditional Japanese celebration of the spirits of family ancestors and an ubiquitous aspect of summer culture in Hawaii.
