Fabric Animal // Sonsherée Giles & Sebastian Grubb

  • The Firehouse @ Fort Mason Center for Art & Culture 2 Marina Boulevard San Francisco, CA, 94123 United States (map)
Two dancers crouched low on dirt and rock near the water of the SF Bay.

An immersive evening of meticulous sensing, daring trust, and physical intimacy in a new contemporary dance work by Sonsherée Giles and Sebastian Grubb. Fabric Animal examines the self as a body-through-time, a psychological and physiological threadwork that leaves poems in its wake. Fabric Animal is the culmination of Giles’ and Grubb’s 10-year history as choreographer peers and dance partners. This embodied kinship roars to life through deep sensing, daring trust and athletic contemporary dance. The detailed choreography challenges endurance and strength, and is enveloped by an original musical score by local composers directed by Caroline Penwarden. Also featuring an original dance film by John Carnahan. The creative process for Fabric Animal draws from contact improvisation, anatomical science, Grubb’s original poetry, and Giles’ otherworldly sculptures and landscape paintings made entirely from fabric.
