Set in Oakland where turfing started, MUD WATER is just as much a blend of styles in dance as it is in film. A melding of dance, documentary, and narrative, two interconnecting stories find their way towards each other in this lyrical film. A man looks for his shadow after being severed from it. And meanwhile, turfers seek to win a dance battle.
This program will feature a dance performance as well as a Q&A with the filmmaker and dancers.
