Created in collaboration by Tim Rubel Human Shakes & sondra j. kazama
Presented April 12th & 13th, 2012
San Francisco, CA
Choreography by Tim Rubel & sondra j. kazama
We Have (Not) premiered as part of the 5th Annual Move(men)t Festival at The Garage, and is a multimedia investigation of the delineation of "Haves" and "Have Nots" as a socioeconomic circumstance.
Through bodily movement, various media platforms and the use of clothing as choreographic impetus, this piece explores the meaning of value as it pertains to the acquisition of goods, as well as the preservation of one's place in the hierarchy of the economic strata. How do we situate ourselves on the rungs of our socioeconomic ladder?
