Three bodies. One field. The 100 best love songs. A performance with three people who believe in the strength of being together. The San Francisco International Arts Festival presents the US debut of Switzerland’s Compagnie Tabea Martin with the performance Field. Field questions how we connect and communicate with others, exposing a mechanism of tragedy and the inability to really meet one another.
The performances of Field are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and ProHelvetia, the Swiss Arts Council. The San Francisco International Arts Festival takes place at, and is co-presented by, the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture.
