Year Of The Snake -- an interdisciplinary work of music, dance, and text -- premieres in San Francisco at CounterPulse November 15th - 17th (get your tickets HERE). Conceived by Bay Area artists Jason Hoopes (composer), Peiling Kao (choreographer), and Karl Jensen (writer/visual), Year Of The Snake explores the power and process of self-transformation. As personal perspective changes, the traumatic shedding of “old skin” and the acceptance of new forms provide useful metaphors for compassionately ushering in needed societal progress -- making the personal public.
Besides the live performance, Year Of The Snake also incorporates a recording of the music (available November 15th) and a book of writing and imagery composed specifically for this work (also available November 15th).
