LEVYdance’s critically acclaimed performance experience hosted in multiple rooms at the General’s Residence for three evenings filled with dancing, drinking, and eating.
Named one of the “Top Ten Moments in Dance” by the San Francisco Chronicle following its 2011 premiere, ROMP is an immersive experience where audience and performers inhabit the same space, raising the stakes for live performance and creating a welcoming environment that is charged with possibility. This limited engagement brings ROMP to the beautiful General’s Residence at Fort Mason Center Nov. 21 – 23.
ROMP seats dancers and audience members together at banquet tables, providing a familiar setting for everyday interactions to transform into an increasingly surreal and hyper expressive world. Whether playful and exuberant or emotionally raw, this world unites audience and performer together in the experience. LEVYdance’s signature partnering and dynamic physicality are witnessed at close range, amplifying the intimate connections inherent in Levy’s work.
The San Francisco Chronicle said, “Audience members were reluctant to leave, lingering at the tables and chatting with perfect strangers, as if it were difficult to leave such a good time behind.” The General’s Residence, a large two story home completed in 1877 and wonderfully preserved by the National Park Service, provides an ideal setting for ROMP. LEVYdance will host audiences in an experience that invites them from room to room, revealing fantastic surprises around every corner.
