Garrett + Moulton Productions recently completed four live performances of "ROLL OUT" - a new work by Janice Garrett for 18 dancers commissioned by and performed at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF). All performances were free and took place in the Pottruck Family Atrium. This joyous, celebratory work was the first live performance event to welcome the community back to the JCCSF. It featured the driving rhythms and soaring lyricism of Marc Mellits' music recorded by Quatuor Debussy and incorporated Garrett + Moulton’s signature Ball Passing and movement choir elements. After each show, audience members were invited to participate in a mini-workshop to learn the art of Ball Passing.
Dancers for the performances included company members Amy Foley, Nol Simonse, Juliann Witt and Ayana Yonesaka plus guest artists Jeanette Abell, Crystaldawn Bell, Sonja Dale, Claire Fisher, Lucia Flexer-Marshall, Emily Hansel, Caitlin Hicks, ArVejon Jones, Jenna Marie Graves, Samuel Melecio-Zambrano, Emily Morrison, Chelsea Mulholland, Jordan Wanderer and Alice Wells.
These performances were made possible with the support of the California Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, SF Grants for the Arts and generous individual donors.
