Founded upon dramatic, life-changing events encountered as a child in Iran, George Staib and his company embark on their most political and socially driven work to date. fence is a journey into a messy world of power struggles and dismissed histories, an examination of how “otherness” can rob our power, or become its source. Staib’s intensely physical movement vocabulary will bond with traditional Iranian dance, exploring unrest felt personally and globally. Via strategic community engagement and digital interaction, audiences become part of the work, giving shape to the dialogue: what takes your power and what gives you power.

Estimated artist fee: estimates do not include airfare$15,000/performance; $22,500/week
