About Cid Pearlman/Performance Projects

"...it was Pearlman’s Drowning Poems that trembled with a poignancy and grief so textually rich it took my breath away. With startling motifs that put the performers in a watery underworld, Daniel Bear Davis, Damara Vita Ganley, and Molly Katzman danced the piece with a solemn passion that was mesmerizing."
Julia Ciapella, santacruzdanceblog.wordpress.com

“Wit is a rare commodity in dance. Even more than its gentler cousin, humor, it demands a finely tuned eye and ability to observe with detachment without letting go of commitment. Cid Pearlman has what it takes.”
Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian

“I want to live in the little societies that Cid Pearlman creates: people hold their ground when they need to, still they have an essential gentleness toward one another.”
Janice Steinberg, San Diego Dance Critic


Cid Pearlman/Performance Projects is a fiscally sponsored project of Dancers' Group. Their work is made possible in part by generous support from the Zellerbach Family Foundation, the Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County, the Rainin Opportunity Fund at ODC Theater, Motion Pacific, and CA$H, a grants program of Theatre Bay Area, in partnership with Dancers’ Group.
