Point of con­tact: Ruth Za­po­rah

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Glimpse, an im­pro­vi­sa­tional dance per­for­mance by Ruth Za­po­rah, is con­ceived of in the mo­ment, with each move­ment an em­bod­i­ment of pres­ence in space. Us­ing hu­mor, pathos, and the range of emo­tive pos­si­bil­i­ties in between, she cre­ates a dream­like en­vi­ron­ment that en­gages all of the senses. Za­po­rah, a Santa Fe res­i­dent, is the cre­ator of Ac­tion Theater, a type of phys­i­cal theater train­ing and a per­for­mance method that re­lies on per­cep­tion and re­sponse to move past one’s own fears and self-judg­ment — and is the ba­sis for her show at the Rai­l­yard Per­for­mance Cen­ter (1611 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-982-8309) on Satur­day, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m., where she dances to mu­sic by lo­cal com­poser Jeremy Ble­ich, with a video in­stal­la­tion by Deb­o­rah Fort. Tick­ets are $20, avail­able at the door.
