Come give San Francisco's own ODC/Dance a warm Berkeley send-off as the acclaimed modern dance group departs for its headlining appearance in the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival. boulders and bones, "a colossal triumph of the imagination" (The Huffington Post), traces the shifting light, changing landscape, and raw natural materials of an Andy Goldsworthy installation and transforms these images into an exploration of the process of creation. Co-choreographed by ODC artistic directors Brenda Way and KT Nelson, the movement is set to a driving electro-acoustic score composed and performed live by cellist Zoë Keating.
