Sharp & Fine present Your Sister Turns Into a Lion @ ODC, SF

"Your Sister Turns Into a Lion" is a new, evening-length narrative dance piece about two sisters and what happens when one of them turns into a lion. Built on spoken text devised by the cast, the show is a hybrid of real memories and surreal fiction, a story told in acrobatic phone calls to next of kin, an interrogation presided over by a conductor, the unabashed savagery of beasts, and the tender folding of maps. With dance, live music, original text, and singing.

December 7, 8, 9 at 8pm
ODC Theater, San Francisco
Tickets: $15 early bird (until November 15), $20 in advance, $25 at the theater. Available here:

Sharp & Fine is a San Francisco based contemporary dance company founded in 2011 by sisters Megan Kurashige and Shannon Kurashige. S&F creates performance work that brings together physically exacting choreography, structured improvisation, emotionally nuanced text, and live music to explore the power of theatrical narrative within the context of dance. Our choreography is informed by both the technical rigor of ballet and the human intensity of contemporary forms.
