Displacement, Recycled is a performance project that brings surrounding communities together to explore ideas of identity displacement and the building of strong, sustainable relationships. This work will premiere on Sunday, August 12, when four beautiful Bay Area dancers perform in the lush backyard space of Urban Bazaar.

With your help, we can make this performance FREE and open to the public! It is our whole-hearted desire to create dance that is accessible and brings communities together. By performing at a local business in the hub of San Francisco's residential area, alongside local coffee shops, bakeries and farmers' markets, we are able to add another layer of interaction and experience to locals and tourists alike. Please help me in gifting this project to the community. 

Why this project is "recycled"...

1) The 40-minute dance piece starts over at the top of every hour from 11am - 3pm. Part of the beauty of live dance performances, as with music, is that it happens in the moment and can never be duplicated exactly the same ever again. So, by seeing the piece in different lighting, from different angles and with different energies, you'll experience a recycling of loss, sorrow, pity, anger, reflection and love. 

2) Our props (of which there are many) are all recycled objects or made from recycled materials - which fits with the philosophy of our performance space,Urban Bazaar!

3) The themes of this piece, because they are deeply rooted in the human experience, are recycled and continue as life meditations, explorations and reflections.

The choreographic intention of Displacement, Recycled is to acknowledge the oscillating complications of life's ebbs and flows, explore the ways in which we adapt to new identities as individuals and what reverberations that has on our identity with our various groups, associations and relationships. Although the continual process of finding oneself can sometimes be uncomfortable, we can find comfort in knowing our collective struggles, though seemingly different, are variations of the same phrase.
