The Riley Project and Aura Fischbeck Dance present new and beloved contemporary dance works in their 2nd home season co-production. With potent and distinct physicality, these works investigate the human condition through the lens of social politics, misbehavior, and love in all its many forms, developed by a collaborative cast of some of San Francisco’s finest dance artists. The show features choreography by Leigh Riley and Aura Fischbeck, and performances by Caroline Alexander, Andi Clegg, Leah Curran, Aura Fischbeck, Gretchen Garnett, Julie Potter, Travis Rowland, Stacey Swann, Katharine Vigmostad
and Andrew Ward.

The Riley Project will be presenting All You Need, a suite of duets, each stemming from one of the Greek words for love.  The second premier will be DuBeUs takes a look at the fine balance between individual and group dynamics; when group assimilation is natural and beneficial, and when it swallows or distorts the individual.

Aura Fischbeck Dance will present the world premier of their newest work, Bodies that Won’t Behave.  Proposing that the body has a “mind” of its own, this piece examines the ways in which our bodies betray our attempts at good behavior, and the dialogue between freedom and control that exists as a fundamentally human experience of the body.
