Close & Personal 

When: Sat., Sept. 28, 5:30 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 29, 5:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $15, $20
Contemporary choreographer Sheena Johnson aptly named her new creation Close & Personal. Performed by Rebel Home Dance in the MilkBar performance space at the Sunshine Biscuit Factory (851 81st St., Oakland), this intimate installation retains very little of the fourth wall. “Don’t come planning to stay in one place,” Johnson said. Instead, expect to move and be moved. Inspired to explore the resonance of recent events such as the Trayvon Martin trial and the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on the Voting Rights Act, Johnson and her suite of collaborators developed the site-specific dance-theater experience to illuminate the realities facing communities of color in America. Through movement, performance, visual art, vocals, music, film, and food, Johnson, Misia Denea, Chris Evans, Toni Lester, Ernest Jolly, and others will shine a very personal, yet universal, light.
