Our ancestors set us on paths that we still walk today in many ways that we don’t even see red ballet slippers with ribbons uk sale. San Francisco native Gypsy Snider of Montreal contemporary circus troupe the 7 Fingers (or Les 7 doigts de la main) wanted to bring those familial connections to the foreground in “Reversible,” the group’s latest touring show that Cal Performances is bringing to UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Hall Feb. 22-24. “Somehow in our society time seems to be moving faster and faster,” Snider says. “And whether it be the media or whether it be how much we feel that we need to get done in one day, in one week, in one lifetime, the past really seems to be melting away in its significance..
“Generations ago it was really clear that you were learning what your forefathers did or what your parents did, or what your parents’ parents did. There was really this sense of handing down who you were red ballet slippers with ribbons uk sale. And now it’s this race against I don’t know what to get I don’t know where. But I feel personally a real need to connect to traditions and patterns that were formed by my great, great, great, great, great grandmother, for example.”. Snider knows a lot about family legacy. Daughter of the founders of San Francisco’s Pickle Family Circus, she went on to be a circus star in her own right with outfits such as Cirque du Soleil and Teatro Zinzanni before co-founding her own troupe in Montreal. (Fellow founding Finger Shana Carroll, who directed the last couple pieces that came to Zellerbach and choreographed one of the numbers in “Reversible,” is also a Bay Area native and Pickle Family veteran.)..
For “Reversible,” Snider had the performers interview grandparents and research their own family histories, collecting stories that she then turned into lyrical acrobatic choreography. “Very often when you’re working in dance and especially in circus, these performers are often in their 20s, most likely even their early twenties,” she says. “I really wanted to create depth in their performance, and that depth was by having them research for over a year certain family members and stories that really illuminated a path much further than their own small path of 25 years on this earth.” red ballet slippers with ribbons uk sale.
The inspiration for “Reversible” came from a visceral experience Snider had a couple of years ago. “The day that I got the idea for this piece, I was hanging very, very, very old sheets on a very, very, very old clothesline at a house that’s been in my family for five generations,” she recalls red ballet slippers with ribbons uk sale. “I was the only one there on the property with no other house for at least half a mile around. And I was actually scared to be standing out in this field by myself. I realized I’m never alone like that. And instantly I was terrified. I thought a bear was going to jump out of the woods and attack me. I just said, whatever you do, just get this laundry on the line. And all of a sudden it was so clear to me that my mother had done this, that my grandmother had done this, and my great-grandmother and my great-great-grandmother had done this very gesture in this very place. And all of a sudden it was like, OK, I probably won’t be eaten by a bear right here, right now.”..
Bears or no bears, Snider is at a point where she finds herself thinking a lot about the cycle of life. “I’m about to turn 49,” she says. “My children are about to leave the nest. I’m at that really fascinating in-between age where my parents are not incredibly long for this earth and my children are about to embark on a new independent journey. And perhaps I will then become the grandparent, and the cycle will continue. I feel that celebrating that, and watching these young performers already take stock of their past with respect and gratitude, is really refreshing to see on stage.” red ballet slippers with ribbons uk sale.
