Megan Lowe Dances presents No Way You Can Encompass All the Things You Might, a process to performance experience at de Young Museum, inspired by the Hung Liu: Golden Gate exhibition.
In Hung Liu: Great Granary by Wu Hung (2010) Liu asks, “What kind of thing is history? What kind of thing can bear witness to history? I had the sense that history had its one-sidedness and its mutability. Also history is a very subjective thing. What you choose to include and what you don’t—there’s absolutely no way you can encompass all the things you might.” Witness dancers create and explore these themes live on site throughout the day and reveal the process of dance-making and editing, concluding in an experimental performance of what was discovered—in celebration of the closing of this powerful exhibit.
