Marking the 1906 Earthquake: San Francisco Off Balance: Ballet Mori and More

Tuesday, April 04, 2006

8 PM

In honor of the centennial of the 1906 Earthquake, "Ballet Mori" engages the earth as a living medium and conductor for dance by measuring minute ground movement at UC Berkeley's Hayward Fault and conveying them via the Internet to the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House. On stage, Principal Dancer Muriel Maffre responds in real time to a musical composition modulated by the unpredictable fluctuations of the earth's movement.

Cost: Exhibit is free event. Ballet performance has admission fee.
