Many contemporary choreographers make dances about big ideas; the best ones create works that are visual and visceral as well as conceptual. Shawl-Anderson Dance Center (2704 Alcatraz Ave., Berkeley) will host two such artists this weekend, when Peiling Kao and Risa Jaroslow and Dancers join forces for a salon showing of new works set to premiere later in the year. Jaroslow, who recently relocated to the Bay Area after forty highly acclaimed years in New York, presents What’s the Upshot?, which asks “how we make decisions that bring us to a point of change.” Melding mathematical rigor and lush musicality, San Francisco-based Kao performs Ludic Numerologies, an exploration of numbers, systems, and manipulation that is greater than the sum of its parts. Kao performs Friday and Sunday only; following its Saturday performance, Jaroslow’s company will present a breakdown of Upshot. Seating is limited, so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended.
