On Saturday, October 4, HERD wowed the crowd at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in SF. HERD was the featured evening performance as part of Open City / Art City, a 3-day event exploring the technologies, communities, and values of Open Cities, and the systems, information, and people that will make them. As usual, HERD presented an eye-popping performance that left the audience considering the themes of Open City / Art City, in less logical, more visceral ways.
Through modular setscapes and unique choreography, HERD: Ways entices the audience to move and be moved in ways unforeseen. The interactive experience instigates new questions of urban homeostasis, human vs. earth, and how we might inspire visions of growth in the mundane push through city landscapes. Bolstered by the captivating projection work of Gene Felice and the entrancing autonomous instruments of Nathan Ober, HERD will activate the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in a multi-sensory story of animal and human herding tactics.
As always, HERD processes from stage to street for an impromptu guerrilla performance. Rave reviews. YES!
