The National Queer Arts Festival and SAFEhouse Arts presents The Drove III by Chlo & Co Dance. Chlo & Co Dance is proud to curate an evening of Bay Area artists examining mysticism and the inevitable. The Drove III features guest work from: Courtney Hope | Kim Ip | Edgar Mendez | Hanna Rose Stangebye | Silk Worm

Chlo & Co Dance will premier Illuminati, their newest project shaped from airplanes, clouds and turning left. With an interest in how to challenge and inspect the ways that mysticism and the inevitable interact, the duo has opened their process to allow the piece to shift and change with different spaces, times, and contexts. Guest artists join in the exploration, tackling space: big and little, orbits, sound, weight and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

About The Drove:
The Drove is a twice-annual evening curated by Chlo & Co Dance. Courtney and Chloë invite artists from the Bay Area to create work in response to given prompts that address an overarching theme for the evening. The evening is curated to create a diverse community of artists by providing them a venue and visibility for their work without the need to produce their own platform.

About Chlo & Co Dance:
Courtney King and Chloë Zimberg met in 2012 and have been dancing and making work ever since. They started performing together in pieces by Scott Wells, Eli Nelson, detour dance, Fog Beast and Rachael Lincoln through the University of San Francisco. In 2014 they made their first dance film while living abroad in Paris and Bologna. Since then, they have continued to make dance films as well as live works performed in the city and on the West Coast at SAFEhouse Arts, The Contemporary Jewish Museum, the LEVYDance Salon, and with Doré Dance Company. Chlo & Co Dance produces The Drove, which takes place twice a year and brings together Bay Area artists for an evening of curated work. Courtney and Chloë strive to create work that is aesthetically dynamic, physical, and that continues to respond to new questions and challenges.

Welcome to the stage ARTIST #2: "Kim Ip, also known as Krimm, would like to spread total fire ban awareness to the streets of San Francisco. She's also very interested in incorporating the cow from Twister into her piece. Since being age 7, her dance training has hinged off of the imagery of the swirling cow in the twister. She's very excited to be working with such *fire* artists."
