ODC/Dance Presents Drinks & a Dance

ODC/Dance Presents Drinks & a Dance

Friday, May 15, 5:15 PM


Instead of a night out, we propose a night in with Drinks & a Dance.

The drink: The Pivot by mixologist H. Joseph Ehrmann of SF’s famed Elixir (delivered to you)
The dance: Waving Not Drowning by choreographer Brenda Way, composer Pamela Z
5:15 PST
Your Zoom theater date begins with you and your friends in an informal, social chat with mixologist, H. Joseph Ehrmann, leading you in the creation of a specialty cocktail designed for the occasion.

If you live within 20 miles of SF, your ingredients can be ordered for purchase and delivery. If you live further afield or already have the ingredients, you will receive a recipe. You will receive your link to Zoom on the day of the event.

5:45 PST
Join everyone in the Zoom lobby with choreographer Brenda Way and composer Pamela Z as they chat “live” about the work, its origins, humor, and implications.

6:00 PST
Waving Not Drowning, a 30 minute dance, is a wry engaging work based on the slim volume, “A Guide to Elegance” written in the 1960’s. (This performance by the ODC dancers was captured of the world premier in 2010 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.)

6:30 PST
Meet back in Zoom for a post-concert conversation with the artists and dancers. Or make another one of those divine cocktails.
RSVP required, limited to 50 participants
Concert complimentary/Donation welcome
