I Don’t Know and I Never Will is an evening-length immersive performance installation by Liss Fain Dance. Based on the deeply personal contact we create and respond to in the letters we write and receive, I Don’t Know and Never Will gives physicality to the voices of people from decades ago through their spoken letters, and brings in voices of people from today. Inside the installation environment, the audience, moves about at will, experiencing the work from multiple perspectives.
Liss Fain Dance invites you to participate in a letter-writing project for the creation of I Don’t Know and Never Will. Be a part of this piece and by writing a note to someone either describing an experience that impacted you greatly or something you wish you had done and did not do. Your note can be anonymous or not as you choose. Excerpts of some of your notes will be read as part of the performance. The dancers and musicians will improvise to your words while hearing them for the first time.
Liss Fain Dance is a San Francisco based dance company whose work expresses the unpredictable course of events that comprise one’s life. Liss Fain’s highly physical, emotionally resonant choreography fuses modern dance’s forceful energy with the kinetic precision of ballet.
