This multimedia exhibition and live event feature the work of poet and storyteller Alan Bern; dancer and choreographer Lucinda Weaver; and artist Robert Woods. With deep roots in Berkeley, all three have been working along parallel lines and then weaving their work together in site-specific collaborations. Woods and Bern have worked together under the fine publishing imprint Lines & Faces for more than forty years. Weaver, who danced with the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, and Bern have performed together for fifteen years as PACES: dance and poetry to fit to the space. Bern and Weaver will perform a dance/poetry collaboration based on broadsides by Bern and Woods that feature Bern's translations of Dante and his poem "Dialogue," a dramatic exchange between Hildegard of Bingen and St. Francis of Assisi.
