Keith Hennessy in conversation with Ben Pryor on the work of Contraband, the legendary San Francisco dance-performance collaborative directed by Sara Shelton Mann. Hennessy will screen and discuss excerpts of a few works including Religare (1986) and The Mira Cycles (1990-96), dialoguing with Pryor about the interests and concerns of the company, how that was reflected in work and life, and how those practices cannot be replicated in the current era.
A dance screening and discussion series, Sorry I Missed Your Show highlights dance works from the recent past to explore their canonical historicity and relationship to contemporary practice.
