Pavel Zuštiak and Palissimo Company: Custodians of Beauty
October 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
In this richly multisensory work, choreographer Pavel Zuštiak and his brilliant New York City-based Palissimo Company (making its Bay Area debut) ask: Where do we find beauty today, and does it need our defense? Zuštiak creates an immersive visual experience for Custodians of Beauty, combining movement with imagery, light, and sound in response to a 2009 speech by Pope Benedict XVI, reminding artists of their responsibilities as “custodians of beauty in the world.” Through formal abstraction and restrained, minimalist gesture, Zuštiak explores the human body as sculpture, emotional trigger, and political symbol.
Approximate run time: 90 minutes, no intermission
