Ranu Mukherjee and Hope Mohr Dance Interactive Performance

Gallery 2

Hope Mohr dancers performing on site at di Rosa

Join us for a special performance by Hope Mohr Dance engaging with Ranu Mukherjee’s Succession (2018), a multi-faceted installation created for Be Not Still Part 2. The performance features new choreography responding to the 2017 North Bay wildfires, developed through dancers’ physical engagement with the burned and recovering landscape on the di Rosa property.

Presented alongside Mukherjee’s project exploring the topic of health and how societal events impact our wellbeing, the performance is a collaborative visceral response to the conditions of the aftermath and our intimate connection to the ground we stand (and dance) on. Featuring dancers Karla Quintero, Suzette Sagisi and Jame Selna.

$10 general / $5 members

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes in advance to allot for shuttle service from admissions to Gallery 2. Guests who arrive more than 45 minutes in advance will be asked to pay general admission.

About the Artists

Ranu Mukherjee (b. 1966, Boston) is a San Francisco-based artist whose work includes hybrid films and installations, drawing, painting, printed textiles, and projects involving choreography, sound design, book making, procession, pirate radio, and the creation of neologisms and avatars. Her projects are fundamentally time-based and embody the ongoing construction of culture through creolization, migration, ecology, speculative fiction, and desire. For Be Not Still, Mukherjee explores the topic of health and how societal events impact our wellbeing—including the relationship between humans and the planet as a whole—through a multi-faceted installation combining choreography, animation, line, and color. She is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco.

Hope Mohr is a choreographer, curator and writer. She is the Artistic Director of Hope Mohr Dance, which creates, presents and fosters outstanding art at the intersection of the body and the brain.
