Tickets: $15 advance / $20 at the door
Now in its 22nd year, the West Wave Festival reorganizes under a new producer Joe Landini in 2013 with a string of four performances by noted and upcoming choreographers and dancers. The first and final two events will be at Z Space in the Mission, with the second in the series taking place at ODC Commons. In that sense, the West Wave Dance festival is firmly grounded in the long fertile Mission dance scene and ethos.
Make.Believe sees contributing artists from a cross section of the Bay Area’s dance community creating new works based on fairy tales and myths. Choreographer Amy Seiwert serves as the Artistic Director and primary choreographer of Imagery. Her collaborations with artists of other disciplines and commitment to experimental work from a classical base make her a unique voice in the Bay Area dance community. She was named one of “25 to Watch” by Dance Magazine, one of the “Hot 20 under 40” by 7×7, was honored with a “Goldie” award from the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
Dancer and dance creators include:
- Milissa Payne
- Robert Dekkers
- Maurya Kerr
- Julia Adam
