Love, a state of grace Film Screening

July 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

About the Film

Love, a state of grace was a four-day installation performed in February, 2022. Choreographed and directed by Joanna Haigood, artistic director of Zaccho Dance Theatre, the performance featured six of the Bay Area’s most talented aerial dancers; a sound score composed by MacArthur Fellow Walter Kitundu; and original props by collaborating designers Wayne Campbell and Sean Riley, including an anchored 100-foot ladder and 70-foot swinging pendulum, each a unique response to the rhythms and height of the cathedral’s Gothic design.

Amid the cathedral’s towering ceiling, stained glass windows, and cavernous chambers, performers ascended a 100-foot ladder and soared on a 70-foot swinging pendulum, defying gravity with equanimous grace.

The film of the installation, co-directed by Joanna Haigood and Bryan Gibel, captures the multifaceted immersive meditation on vulnerability, courage, and loving attunement to our common humanity, told through the mesmerizing art of aerial dance.

If you were lucky enough to attend a performance, see the film to remember how beautiful and how moving Love, a state of grace was; if you missed the performance, see the film, shown in the cathedral where it happened – it will almost be like being there.

Joanna and Bryan will speak briefly about the creation of the installation and the film, and answer questions following the screening.
