"Friendly Host" - Kenneth Rainin Foundation

“Friendly Host”

A dance theater song cycle offered as a site-specific tour that progresses through public and privately-owned spaces of West Oakland. Rules and agreements of space use, spoken and unspoken, are constantly colliding with the very personal but also socially embodied experience of race, gender, sexuality, histories, physical abilities, age, ancestry, and financial inequities. Audiences are invited to consider how each of us is responsible for creating welcome and engendering belonging.
