Yes, Palo Alto. We are kicking off "Retail Dance" with an installation/special event at Modernbook, 494 University Ave., Palo Alto at 8:30 PM on Friday, June 16. The book store is promoting photographer Philippe Glade's new book and we are supporting his work by dancing within some of his slide images prior to the unveiling. We have been funded by the bookstore.<P>This would be on the "special events" side of Retail Dance, as opposed to the "installation" side in which we would collaborate to promote a product, (like a shoe) or a service (food.com) on the internet. Please, come one, come all!

Previously I had cited press material that described a Sara Mann work as being site-specific. Jennifer asked how it could be site-specific if it is performed in a theater.<P>Here is a wonderful response and clarification from Ms Mann herself (she responded to me by email):<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The intention was to design all three studios and entrance spaces at Dance Mission into a walk through situation - Each room was to be designed as a state that would repeat/be recycled and the audience could enter or exit at will. The vision was much larger than the money for this project - thus it became condensed into one room and redesigned for stage. Conceptually, it did serve the work - and I kept this idea until the last week. The work was put up without crew, house/stage manager - designer, etc. It was not a site-specific work by the time it got to the performance - this was the vision of the work and I hope to acquire the funds to do it in the future. There are two other sections still to be made. (The prologue was created to be viewed in the round - the 2nd section was conceived as a recycled form that would repeat over and over - desirable that audience could come up close and listen or watch from the sides. When show time came close, I needed to put together a form that had some cohesion for stage. In my mind - I had every room and corner cleaned, painted, perfectly there with objects and words to reanimate the soul - One step at a time. Thanks for the question.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

And, now, for an interesting twist on site-specific dance, check out the description of Liss Fain's upcoming "Quarry" in the following thread:<P> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum5/HTML/000127-2.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum5/HTML/000127-2.html</A>
