It’s October, and that means it’s time to climb aboard a streetcar named dance! Kim Epifano’s Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater is gearing up once again to take audiences on a creative ride through the city’s urban landscape with San Francisco Trolley Dances. This moveable feast of modern dance is a chance to see several short, original performances by some of the Bay Area’s most innovative dance companies for just the cost of a $1.50 ride on Muni.
In the company of “tour guides”, you will travel by trolley to three different performance sites, getting on and off to view these dance pieces set in unexpected public locations. This year audiences start in the Castro, where Jo Kreiter’s Flyaway Productions will perform an aerial piece, dancing on a large wall-painted mural. Next up, Paco Gomes and Dancers explore immigration in a spectacular dance at the UN Plaza fountain. Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater, together with guest artists Stephen Kent (didgeridoo), renowned choreographer/dancer Robert Henry Johnson, and UC Berkeley’s Bay Area Repertory Dance Ensemble finish it off with a meditation in motion at the labyrinth in Duboce Park. Along the way, audiences will be thrilled with surprise performances by the dancing puppets of Dudley Brooks’s Run For Your Life!...it’s a dance company!, as well as Rosie and the Radiators, holders of eight Guinness Book of World Records’ Long Distance Group Tap Dance records (and still the champs)!
So bring the whole family to this freewheeling festival of site-specific dance and prepare to experience the West Coast’s most beautiful city in a whole new way. All aboard! The public should be aware that they will stand to watch the performances and that there is some moderate walking required to reach each performance site. All sites are wheelchair accessible.
If you are interested in volunteering for Trolley Dances or any event, please contact Amy Kingwill, email@example.com. We can always use the help!

This was for a performance which took place in 2007.
