Three times a lady: Dancers act up in Golden Gate Park for Bodies That Won't Behave.

Bodies will be seen in conjunction with two premieres by Leigh Riley, All You Need and DuBeUs. All You Need grew out of Riley's interest in Aristotle's concepts of love: philia, eros, storge, and agape. "I grew up in a Christian tradition where we always heard about those four different kinds of love," Riley explains. "But I really wanted to make four very different duets." DuBeUs is a collaborative quintet for Caroline Alexander, Jennifer Bennett, Leah Curran, Stacy Swann, and Katharine Vigmostad. It examines the demands on an individual's identity when belonging to and assimilating into a group, such as happened, for instance, throughout "Don't ask, don't tell." *
