Smart Night Outing
FREE for YBCA:You only
YBCA’s highly successful performance program Smart Night Out now has a cousin, Smart Night Outing! In addition to upcoming Smart Night Out programs this year at YBCA Presents performances (part workshop, part dinner date, and part backstage sneak peek), Smart Night Outings take participants beyond YBCA on performance fieldtrips all over the Bay. Whether you’re a contemporary performance lover or skeptic, Smart Night Outings will guide you through new experiences from a variety of angles with your Youer community as well as selected artists and insiders.
Z Space: The Foundry and Bobbi Jene SmithAug 1, 2012 7:30pm – 10:00pm
FREE for YBCA:You
This Smart Night Outing takes participants to Z Space for a double bill by The Foundry and Bobbi Jene Smith presented by the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance. Bobbi Jene Smith will perform Love, a 17-minute solo by Sharon Eyal. The Foundry's No Hero is a study on our country and all its tremendous diversity, beauty, confusion, and stratification economically and socially. The company traveled extensively throughout the rural west, sharing the dance we do with strangers we meet, as well as finding out what dance means to the lives of people in small towns throughout the county.
In addition to some suggested reading emailed to you ahead of time, we’ll gather at 7:30pm in the Z Space lobby to up your performance savvy with viewing tips and introduction. After the 8pm performance we’ll treat you to a drink at A'siento and discuss the work and the practice of improvisation. Don’t miss this Outing! Limited to 8 Youers, so get your ticket now!
Note: You must be a YBCA:You participant in order to RSVP. You will receive further directions after you've reserved your spot for the outing.
