On the evenings of April 20 - 22, 2018, at Dance Mission Theater, dazaun.dance is presenting the world premiere of existence. existence is a visceral exploration that uses the dynamic aesthetics of hip-hop, contemporary and floor techniques in order to reveal the beauty and complexity of the minority experience with code switching and assimilation.
Code switching is the phenomenon of an individual adapting their speech to the dominant language or culture in order to succeed or fit in. existence expands or translates what's conventionally understood as a linguistic practice to the world of the body. The work uses the company members' experience with code switching as the foundation for the creation.
The former Robert Moses' Kin dancer has a surfeit of intriguing ideas to play with, including compelling floor work and a fast-slow movement quality that continually catches you off guard. - Claudia Bauer, Freelance Writer for the San Francisco Chronicle

This April, Dance Mission Theater will celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Grrrl Brigade, Dance Mission Youth Dance Company. Based on Dance Brigade's approach to dance theater with a political message, Dancing on the Edge of the World takes the audience on a journey through the people's history. Through fierce dancing and ground shaking taiko drumming the Grrrl Brigade remembers and honors those that have truly built our America.
The GRRRL Brigade is an intensive dance/leadership development program designed to provide high quality dance training, performance opportunities, and a sense of self-empowerment for San Francisco's girls ages 9 to 18. The goal is to give the girls, their parents, and our audience the inspiration, magic, and hope only evocative dance theater can spark in creating a just and peaceful world.
Saturday night includes a Silent Auction and Gala and is a benefit for Grrrl Brigade.
