INDIVIDUAL EVENTS

– Fri – Sun, 1/11 – 1/20/2019 – “Mind the Gap” (AIR) Artist in Residence Performance

Kinetic Arts Center’s 2019 Artist in Residency Program presents:
MIND THE GAP by Bay Area twins Aviva & Molly Rose-Williams
A circus-dance show about the intricacies of twinhood.

MIND THE GAP // created and performed by Bay Area twins Aviva & Molly Rose-Williams
Between communication and understanding lies a vast, sometimes hilarious, at times perilous, uniquely indescribable abyss. Join the intimate journey of two twins exploring the gap between them. We stretch the limits of our uncommon understanding, grasping for the words in every language available – singing, dancing, flipping, climbing, rolling, and pitching ourselves ever onward towards an increasingly elusive clarity. What results is, well, hard to explain. For audiences of all ages.

Kinetic Arts Center is proud to help Aviva and Molly Rose-Williams develop and perfect Mind the Gap through our Artist in Residency program.

Fri Jan 11, 8pm Fri Jan 18, 8pm*
