COMUNIDADE: In Community We Are One, is a new dance-theater-poetry work about bringing people together and healing in community.
Directed by acclaimed Afro-Brazilian choreographer, Tania Santiago, the journey started when Tania started to teach her dance classes at the beach during the pandemic — right on the sand next to the water. For the next year and a half, that was her and her students’ studio. Their safe place. Their home. When considering what is healing, it is important to understand what we are healing from.
Through dance and music, this show highlights the hardships that the global pandemic brought unto everyone these past couple of years, but also heavily focuses on how we came together as a community and found our light at the end of the tunnel.
Comunidade is 75 minute work featuring 14 dancers, 3 drummers, poet Gloria Yamato, and music by Tosh Harris Santiago. Together, they have imagined both ancient and modern ways our community can come together in San Francisco to alleviate the suffering, sadness, and loss we’ve all felt since 2020.
Event is made possible in part with support from Dance Mission’s Reparations program.
