Tim Rubel Human Shakes' newest dance project, examines sustainable philosophies and their relationship to the job market.
Check out this video clip of "Excess Study." This movement is from our recent work-in-progress showing of the project at TwinSpace Continuum, a delightful art space in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District. In this movement, the competition associated with job hunting is put on excessive physical display. How can we live sustainably when we participate in a job market that functions on excessive consumerism? Are we truly sustaining ourselves by settling for a job simply because it is a "a job?" These questions have been guiding me in creating this dance. My goal for this project is to make a large-scale dance that asks these complicated questions in a way that is both humorous and choreographically innovative.
April 12th and 13th 2012. The Garage Theatre. San Francisco, CA. 8pm. This next iteration of my project will be a collaborative duet between myself and fellow San Francisco dance artist, Sondra Kazama. Sondra recently moved to San Francisco from San Diego, where she danced extensively with notable choreographers and companies such as Colette Harding Contemporary Dance Company, Wendy Rogers Dance and The PGK Project. She also presented her own work in San Diego and Los Angeles. I am thrilled to be working with Sondra, and can't wait to show you what we're making!
July 6, 7, 8th 2012. The Official Premiere performed by my entire company of dancers and collaborators. (Venue still under negotiation). San Francisco, CA. All shows 8pm.
I hope you will help fund this project! Your contributions are essential. They will go towards:
*Securing a state-of-the-art theatre for the official premiere.
*Paying the dedicated dancers and other artistic collaborators for their great work.
We can't do it without you, and if we don't raise at least $3300.00 by April 10th, we won't receive a dime of your generous donations. Please collaborate with me to help bring this dance to the community. Thank you so much!
