This Thanksgiving weekend the CONCEPT series provides a fun, local, cultural alternative to the consumer mayhem of Black Friday. RAWdance’s beloved series serves up a fresh dose of unique, high quality dance art in a lavish setting, but with a living room vibe. Five Bay Area choreographers, including Kristin Damrow, Rogelio Lopez, and Diane Frank, join RAWdance to share works- in-progress fresh from the studio and revamped repertory tailored for intimate viewing. A modern-day salon hosted by RAWdance’s Artistic Directors, Ryan T Smith and Wendy Rein, the CONCEPT series brings dancing and innovative choreography up-close and personal through this celebrated pay-what-you-can event. Now in its 21st round, the series continues in the Green Room at the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center — a rare opportunity to see dance in one of the most beautiful rooms of the city.

A Charlie Brown Christmas with the San Francisco Symphony

8x8x8 with detour dance
A response to the lack of suitable, affordable performance spaces for choreographers working in the San Francisco Bay Area, 8x8x8 challenges eight choreographers to create work for an alternative venue, typically a bar or nightclub. Ticket prices are minimal - $8 at the door - encouraging both dance lovers and the non-dance audience to view dance in a low-key setting. By bringing dance to unusual venues typically reserved for live music, 8x8x8 is a successful new experiment in choreography, presentation, and audience development.
The 8's are back with another stellar lineup including Evie Ladin, Bandelion, dana e. fitchett, Aviva Rose-Williams, Nol Simonse and more! I'm excited to be joining Eric Garcia and detour dance for this exciting event!
