“A beautifully perceptive microcosm of humanity.”

Running Time 60 Minutes With No Intermission


Award-winning Israeli-American choreographer Yasmeen Godder has received worldwide acclaim for her intensely physical, no- holds-barred approach to movement. Set entirely to recordings of well- known waltzes, Yasmeen’s new work Love Fire is a visceral response to the desire to fall in love, to lose control, to be transformed and to be taken by passion. Love Fire gives an exhilarating new twist to stereotypes of male and female identity, and the roles they play within a relationship. Johann Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz will never be the same again!


This performance is made possible in part by a grant from the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest in San Francisco.
