HOMEWARD The world premiere of choreographer Sarah Bush’s Homeward opens on Saturday at the Shawl-Anderson Dance Center. Homeward focuses on the different meanings of the concept of “home” and includes a multi-generational cast featuring Bay Area dance luminaries Joan Lazarus and Sue Li Jue (who retires this year after 30 years on faculty at UC Berkeley). Homeward also makes very unique use of Shawl-Anderson Dance Center – a two-story craftsman home which has housed the dance center for nearly 60 years. Bush is using the space as both a performance venue and an exhibit hall – with some spaces staged for performance and others designed as moving and static installations.
