ODC Dance
5:15 PST
Your Zoom theater date begins with you and your friends in an informal, social chat with mixologist, H. Joseph Ehrmann, leading you in the creation of a specialty cocktail designed for the occasion.

If you live within 20 miles of SF, your ingredients can be ordered for purchase and delivery. If you live further afield or already have the ingredients, you will receive a recipe. You will receive your link to Zoom on the day of the event.

5:45 PST
Join everyone in the Zoom lobby with choreographer Brenda Way and composer Pamela Z as they chat live about the work, its origins, humor, and implications.

6:00 PST
Waving Not Drowning, a 30 minute dance, is a wry engaging work based on the slim volume, “A Guide to Elegance” written in the 1960’s. (This performance by the ODC dancers was captured of the world premiere in 2010 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.)

6:30 PST
Meet back in Zoom for a post-concert conversation with the artists and dancers. Or make another one of those divine cocktails.

RSVP required, limited to 50 participants
Concert complimentary/Donation welcome

BREATHING is a movement from Carbon Song Cycle (a inter-media chamber work by composer/performer Pamela Z and visual artist Christina McPhee). The work was originally written for voice & electronics, bassoon, viola, cello, percussion, and tape. This is a solo version performed by the composer (with just voice, processing, and tape), recorded at a 3/13/2014 duo concert with Joan La Barbara as part of the 2014 ROOM Series. Pamela Z is using a gesture controller (designed and built by Donald Swearingen). © 2013 Last Letter Music (ASCAP)
