Frontiers of Dance
Spark explores the frontiers of the dance world with some of the Bay Area's most innovative choreographers and performers. First, go into rehearsal with artistic director Ledoh of Salt Farm Butoh Dance Company as he uses the contemporary Japanese form to explore his Burmese ancestry. See glimpses of AXIS Dance Company's world premiere of "Dust," a provocative choreo-portrait that challenges the viewer's assumptions about each of the performers. Meet Belva Stone as she instructs students in the art of poi, an ancient fire dance first practiced by the Maori people of New Zealand.
