The African & African American Performing Arts Coalition and K*Star*Productions are pleased to announce the 15th anniversary edition of the Black Choreographers Festival: Here and Now (BCF), which will take place over four consecutive weekends, February 16--March 10, in San Francisco and Oakland. Following the opening two weekends at Dance Mission Theater in San Francisco, the Festival will move to SAFEhouse Arts at 145 Eddy Street for weekend three, with a final program at Laney College Theater in Oakland, March 9--10.
This year’s Black Choreographers Festival is one for the books—a full month of programming to mark the event’s 15th anniversary. Before heading to SAFEhouse Arts and Laney College in March, the festival opens with two weekends at Dance Mission. Week One’s line up includes work by Gregory Dawson, Raissa Simpson and Antoine Hunter and Week Two features Ashley Gayle & Noah James, Dazaun Soleyn and Cherie Hill.
