The Tenderloin Museum is excited to host Chlo & Co Dance for the company’s biannual show, Drove. Drove V will be developed and performed by Chlo & Co Dance, joined by their curated guest artists, many of whom have connections to the Tenderloin: Bellwether Dance Project, Malia Byrne, Michael D. Lee, pateldanceworks, and Requisitedance. Chlo & Co Dance will create a new piece in conversation with TLM artist-in-residence Deirdre Weinberg’s Living Memory in the TL.
The founders of Chlo & Co Dance, Courtney King and Chloë Zimberg, share an interest in social justice; they designed their company’s Drove series to be community based performances that use movement and visual art to amplify the voice and impact of their guest artists’ visions. Guest artists are given prompts by King and Zimberg that are compositionally and thematically curated to address an overarching theme. For Drove V, King and Zimberg chose the theme of “preservation,” which also serves as the conceptual entry point to Weinberg’s visual investigations of memory and representation as (im)perfect modes of preservation. Chlo & Co Dance’s performance will respond to Weinberg’s sprawling, richly detailed map-mural of scenes, faces, and places in the TL.
Tickets are $10 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. In addition, Chlo & Co Dance will join Weinberg in the Tenderloin Museum for her SF Open Studios weekend (October 13th and 14th from 1pm - 4pm)--these free, open rehearsals will invite the public to witness the artists’ process as this original work takes shape.
