[u.u.u.], prelude is a performance offering, ritual, and choreographic project premiering virtually in the San Francisco Bay Area between May 27 - 30, 2021 that explores club spaces as sites of generative dissonance and asks, "Are we celebrating, mourning, or both? How do we prepare for that which has not yet arrived? What do quantum physics and entanglement have to do with love, accountability, and shame? What needs to be surrendered? What can we say NO to?"
[u.u.u] will use the framework of an excavation site in the form of a nomadic-quotidian-emergent-virtual club space that will be activated through a rigorous physicality that integrates durational club dancing, endurance-sustained art, eco-drag realness, systems of improvisation, ritual, and Qi Energetic principles.
