From Containment To Expansion

Free * Masks required
For their 10th Anniversary Season, ABD/Skywatchers, in partnership with Dance Mission Theater, presents From Containment To Expansion, a multidisciplinary performance that centers the stories and talents of Tenderloin resident ensemble members, drawing on liberatory movements from the Gullah people of Carolina lowlands through to the current Movement for Black Lives. The Tenderloin neighborhood of SF is commonly referred to as a containment zone for the decades of civic neglect and marginalization to which its poor, unhoused, often Black and Brown residents have been subjected. From Containment To Expansion integrates processional, dance, music, and spoken word, and features an original score by internationally recognized choral director, and vocal activist Melanie DeMore. Through Gullah stick pounding and shared song, we invite you to join us as we move from our city’s defacto containment zone into a zone of shared liberation.
ASL interpretation will be provided for all performances. The show runs 30-45 minutes.
Presented as part of Dance Mission’s HOME Series.
