It’s all about love Sunday night at gallery performance

“A Small Evening About Love” will be presented at 7 p.m. Sunday at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis.

Love in all its grandeur and messiness is the theme of the night. Artists, most of them local, will address the subject through dance, poetry or prose.

The seed of the idea came from the reunion of Linda Bair, artistic director of the Linda Bair Dance Company, and Jorge Luis Morejon, dancer, actor and opera singer currently teaching at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad.

Two years ago, the dancers met while Morejon was finishing his Ph.D. in performance at UC Davis and they decided to work together. Over the course of many months of exploration in the dance studio, “My Hands/Tus Brazos” was created. The dance is a passionate exploration of love in a long-term relationship.

Morejon will be back in Davis this weekend and so the two will again be able to present their piece.

“So many people have come up to speak to me each time we perform it, sharing their own story about love or guessing at ours,” Bair said in a news release.

Wanting to see more cross-pollination between artists, they have invited other local artists to join them in sharing work about love.

“My Hands/Tus Brazos” opens the evening, followed by poetry from Davis’ poet laureate Allegra Silberstein; renowned poet and mom of three Jill Stengel; and UC Davis student, poet and painter Corey LaRue.

Ann Murray Paige, an award-winning journalist, writer, founder of Project Pink, a nonprofit organization supporting young women with breast cancer, and star of ‘The Breast Cancer Diaries,” will read a new piece.

Dave Griffin, actor, writer and creator of the radio series “Bunker 21,” will do a scene reading. Lastly, Cassie Gardner will give a sneak preview of a new one-woman show titled “The Break Up Letters,” a hilarious look at leaving, and leaving and leaving.

The performance is a free event and runs about an hour.
