Local artist Samantha Giron isn't afraid to bring up the uncomfortable questions: Career or children? Sex or security? Now or Later? Settle or Fly Away? In her dance program The Dirt on Dorian Gray, she blends contemporary, street dance, electronic music and interviews conducted during her research to talk about up the uncomfortable truth: the Peter Pan Syndrome we all have, in one way or another, here in San Francisco.
I've seen her work a few times and I am always amazed by the choreography and sound scores. Every time I leave in deep thought about my own human experience. The show starts this Friday, July 19th at Counter Pulse, one of my venues -- it's intimate setting helps to connect you as a vistor to the performers and other attendants alike. Do check it out.
