EPOCH

EPOCH is an extended-length performance with new music by Cheryl E. Leonard that challenges the glorification of acquisition and excess.

Funsch Dance’s extended-length work, EPOCH, subverts conventional performance models by pushing the limits of durationIn cheeky defiance of modern dance pioneer Doris Humphrey’s warning “All dances are too long,” EPOCH unfolds over 12 hours, with 12 performers, in a gratuitous surplus of movement, interrupted by moments of nothingness. Challenging the glorification of acquisition and excess, EPOCH argues instead for “unproductivity” and the transformative potential of time. The performance features an original score by San Francisco-based composer Cheryl E. Leonard, who will create an installation of found-object musical instruments that is played and dismantled over the duration of the performance. EPOCH premieres from 12 PM March 7, 2020 to 12 AM March 8, 2020 at ODC Theater in San Francisco.
