HMD marks its 10th Anniversary with the premiere of Precarious June 1-3. This program is co-produced with CounterPulse, sponsored by the Joe Goode Annex, and in collaboration with Shaping SF Walking Tours.
Inspired by HMD's experience working in a historic blacksmith forge that has now been converted into a pot dispensary, this event includes a labor history walking tour (4:30 PM, begins at 443 Folsom and ends at Counterpulse) and a performance by Hope Mohr Dance at CounterPulse (8 PM, Thurs-Saturday). Please note: Pre-show walking tours are Friday and Saturday only.

Now not Now is a ten minute work of choreography by Hope Mohr developed and presented in conversation with Ranu Mukherjee’s exhibition ‘Shadowtime’ at Gallery Wendi Norris. In her works, Mukherjee overlays depictions of bodies performing deliberate, urgent actions and expressions of love in an uneasy historical moment. Mohr's choreography responds to Mukherjee’s paintings and activates the gallery space with bodies in motion. In the dance, as in Mukherjee’s work, image emerges out of layers of line and gesture. The dancers explore irregular rhythms, surrender their weight to the ground, and embody tensions between performance and representation.
