Sarah Bush Dance Project explores the concept of home — literally
By Maxine Marshall | December 6, 2017
Sarah Bush Dance Project celebrates its 10th anniversary season with “Homeward,” a one-hour performance that considers the idea of home — both emotional and physical — with a multigenerational cast of dancers.
“Homeward” is derived from “Home,” an earlier work Sarah Bush created in response to Hurricane Katrina’s destruction in New Orleans in 2005 and the political climate in which the rebuilding process took place. This new piece revives that perspective.
“Homeward” is born in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma, as well as the Wine Country fires. The performance includes solos, duets and ensembles to explore family relationships. It also incorporates pop music from across the decades.
At the performance at the two-story Shawl Anderson Dance Center in Berkeley, formerly a single-family home, the audience is encouraged to explore the building and take in the Craftsman architecture as well as several art installations.
