Empty Spaces | Revisited is choreographer Rogelio Lopez’s attempt to resurface his memories of growing up as a gay man in Mexicali, Mexico — “the faint, painful, lovely, scary, lonely, and sacred reminiscence discarded in darkness,” as his description reads. The dimly lit, intimate evening of dance will take place at the homelike Shawl-Anderson Dance Center (2704 Alcatraz Ave., Berkeley) on October 9 and 10, at 8 p.m. The choreography will be sprawled out into four rooms, each with a pre-show installation that audiences can take in before the show. Then, the audience will be broken up into groups of no more than fifteen people and seated in various rooms while the cast of twelve dancers splits up, switching between rooms, performing four slightly different shows simultaneously. Empty Spaces premiered at Shawl-Anderson in March to sold-out audiences. The revisited version involves new scenes and new dancers, offering another chance to experience Lopez’s shadowy recollections. — Sarah Burke
