On this week’s densely packed Open Air, KALW’s weekly magazine for the performing arts, host David Latulippe talks with choreographer Kristin Damrow who shares details about her company’s production of ‘Eames’. This dance production is inspired by the life and iconic designs of Ray and Charles Eames (a painter and an architect respectively), who revolutionized the face of furniture design in the 1950s, and the lesser-known story about their relationship as husband and wife, and as collaborative business partners. ‘Eames’ runs from January 25-27 at ODC Theater in San Francisco.
