Thursday, August 1 at 6:15pm


Oakland-based choreographer and performer, Liv Schaffer, is a Jacob’s Pillow Artist Educator with Curriculum in Motion and Medicine in Motion programs. Schaffer creates in both concert and community dance settings; performing with Robert Moses’ Kin and Dance Exchange, alongside her Directorship of University of San Francisco’s intergenerational dance company; the Dance Generators.

In collaborative efforts with five performers, Schaffer presents three separate works created between 2014-2018, that abstract essences of remembrance, gender, effort, and wonder. Each of the works offers a view of the various ways Schaffer paints her inner terrain during times of personal grief or collective tenacity, using the fleeting nature of performance to illuminate bits of our own ephemeral stories amidst expansive athleticism and playful rhythms.
