Liss Fain Dance is known coast to coast for its innovative blending of
fast-paced modern dance with the clarity and vertical lift of ballet. Now in
a special home season performance, Artistic Director Liss Fain, heralded by
Voice of Dance critic Allan Ulrich as "Ša choreographer who takes the
chances that matter," masterfully demonstrates the stirring capacity of
movement in combination with voice to express deep emotions. Fain and the
company¹s nine dancers premiere a powerful new work entitled "When Still,"
set entirely to vocal music including Monteverdi's Madrigals of Love and War
and medieval Gregorian chant recorded by San Francisco¹s own Grammy-award
winning Chanticleer. Also featured on the program will be a revival of
"River at the End of the Land" with music by the father of modern Nubian
music Hamza el Din and two recently reworked pieces: "The Line Between
Night and Day" set to Messiaen's 'Quartet for the End of Time' and "The
Unknown Land" set to music by Gyorgy Ligeti.
