Come ride the rails to discover a free, moveable feast of dance in the streets of San Francisco this October! Now in its 5th year, San Francisco Trolley Dances brings dance out of the theater and into the citys urban landscape where some of the Bay Areas most critically acclaimed companies perform original, site-specific works. For this anniversary year, producer Kim Epifanos Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater takes audiences on the new T-line for a round trip journey from Mission Bay out to Bayview Hunters Point and back to UCSFs Mission Bay campus. Along the way, theyll get on and off the trolley to see performances by the breathtakingly athletic Scott Wells & Dancers, renowned place-based artist Joanna Haigoods Zaccho Dance Theatre, local Bayview Hunters Point Brazilian martial arts group Adigun Sipho Capoiera, San Diego Dance Theater and Epiphany Productions. Other surprise performances await trolley travelers as well, so bring the whole family to this freewheeling festival of site specific dance and prepare to experience the city in a whole new way. All aboard!
The public should be aware that they will stand to watch the performances and that there is some moderate walking required to reach each performance site. All sites are wheelchair accessible.
