'West Wave Dance Festival 2002'
Through July 28, Cowell Theater

WEEK TWO OF Summerfest/dance's three-week West Wave Dance Festival 2002 kicks off Thursday with a performance by physical comedian Dudley Brooks, who brings in four dancers and two puppets for the world premiere of A Short Duet (Nocturne in A-Flat Major from Les Sillyphides). Also on the bill: Joanna Haigood, who returns to the stage with cohorts Mercy Sidbury and Sara Shelton Mann in Defining Ground; the quirky Maxine Moerman in her solo Lullaby; Carol Kueffer with a quartet piece; and Liss Fain's Desert Pieces, with a sextet of dancers. This program plays for two nights only. Saturday and Sunday it's a whole new ball game, with contributions by Erin Mei-Ling Stuart, Heidi Schweiker and Melanie Elms, Martt Lawrence, Manuelito Biag, and Jose Navarre and Debby Kajiyama, all of whom bring their own perspectives to a festival that is small on funds but big on ambition. For ancillary events and a schedule, check the Web site. This week: Program Three, Thurs.-Fri., 8 p.m.; Program Four, Sat.-Sun., 8 p.m., Fort Mason Center, Marina at Laguna, S.F. $18-$20.
