premiered at Grace Cathedral in consortium with over 300 performers representing the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. Audience members viewed the GROUND SERIES duet at the festival's station behind the Main Altar.
Choreographed by Brittany Delany in partnership with musician Rob Cheifetz, the performance was inspired by the dramatic architecture and sacredness of the site through a collaborative collision of improvised movement and saxophone.
