Work In Progress: the home stretch

Below is an updated schedule from Weber Dance for the final weekend of Work In Progress (open rehearsals in vacant storefronts) in Fort Point Channel. Tonight, we’ll also be featuring Jared Green, writer, who will be working live in the space.

This weekend is Fort Point Channel Open Studios Weekend—things are happening all over the neighborhood. Right across the street, we recommend Hotel Cassiopeia from our new-found friends at Fort Point Theatre Channel.

If you have a moment, drop by and see us before we move on. Also, please take a brief survey after watching Work In Progress. Your feedback will help us design our next installation.


Friday, May 6

2:30-5:30PM REHEARSAL
Weber Dance will be teaching roles to San Francisco based dancer, Becca Rozell, for an upcoming residency in Juneau Alaska. Becca will be learning three sections of dance over the course of three days.

6:00-8:00PM WRITER AT WORK * New Addition
Writer Jared Green will work on a piece called, “10-26: In the Ruins of the Memory Palace,” which is partly about taking stock of things he can no longer remember, including memories of his childhood. As he types, his “words in progress” will be projected live, two stories tall. Open to the public.

Saturday May 7, 11:30AM-4:30PM REHEARSAL
First hour: dancers, Shannon Humphreys and Jody Weber will revive Split Sense, a dance from the company’s repertory that will be performed at the end of June. Weber Dance will continue the process of teaching parts to Becca Rozell. Remainder: other company dancers will join for parts of the rehearsal to facilitate her process.

Sunday May 8, 9:30AM to 12:30PM REHEARSAL
Full company plus guests will be working on the new dance. We will be assimilating dancers into their roles in particular groupings for various performances over the next two months.
