'Still Life No. 6' draws from images and compositional elements found in an installation by visual artist Doris Salcedo (Plegaria Muda, from SFMOMA's collection). This piece features live music by Shanna Sordahl, and original costumes by Liz Brent. This work is made with support from residencies at Shawl-Anderson Dance Center and the CHIME Program at the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company.
