SAN FRANCISCO, September 2nd, 2014 –Due to popular demand, LV Dance Collective, CODE is back one more time! See what the audience said about the show:
“LV Dance Collective will remind you why The Garage is our Off Off Off Broadway of SF Local Dance !! These young artists brought everything they have for their HOME season.” -Jim Tobin, Bay Area Dance Watch
“Wow! Art, passion, strength, commitment, and talent defined tonight's performance. It was a privilege to watch and be so emotionally touched by the story.” -Cathy Stokes
As part of The Garage’s Resident Artist Workshop (RAW) Series (a 12-week residency program with 4-6 hours of free rehearsal space that culminates in a two night performance) LV Dance Collective—a Bay Area Based Contemporary Fusion Performance company founded in 2013, under Artistic Direction of founders/choreographers KAO VEY SAEPHANH and MARTHA L. ZEPEDA—will be presenting an Encore Performance of CODE, back by popular demand! This performance will include the investigation of past works through a new lens, sjDANCEco ChoreoAward Collaborative Choreography “Quest For Truth”, and two new world premiers. The productions overall theme “CODE” explores the search for truth and identity and how that is influenced by cultural expectation. LVDC makes strong convincing statements through quirky disguised messages. In this production both Saephanh and Zepeda have taken choreographic risks while focusing on re-connecting identity in the various forms that they have selected to explore.
