Directed and Choreographed by Stephan Koplowitz and performed by AXIS Dance Company with an integrated cast of 21 dancers.

Occupy is a site-specific journey inspired by the history, design and architecture of Yerba Buena Gardens and the unique movement capabilities of AXIS Dance Company and its broader community of performers.

Commissioned by AXIS and directed and choreographed by internationally renowned site artist Stephan Koplowitz, and featuring a live, original score by acclaimed composer and vocalist Pamela Z, Occupy mines the intersection of space and its connection to our personal, domestic, physical and spiritual bodies.

How does our occupation and navigation of space – when the very notion is being challenged – translate into our sense of who we are? Who gets in? Who gets pushed out?
