RAWdance is a contemporary dance company known for transforming theaters and public spaces. RAWdance will look at the recurring history of clashes between power structures and society’s intellectuals and culture makers: from the destruction of the library of Alexandria to China’s Cultural Revolution, the Khmer Rouge to the Spanish Civil War. Critical thinking has regularly and quite often violently been considered a threat, risky to those in power or those trying to usurp it. What does it mean to be an informed citizen?

Fauxnique is the drag queen alter ego of Monique Jenkinson, a multi-genre performing artist (dance, cabaret, theater) whose work considers the performance of femininity as a powerful, vulnerable, and subversive act. Fauxnique digs into questions around belonging and finds authenticity through practices of artifice. What do we mean when we call someone a “real american” or a “real” anything?

Part of: TRANSFORM FEST
Sep 14 — Sep 23 2017

Transform is YBCA’s exciting new performance festival. Each fall and spring, we will convene leading contemporary artists for a provocative showcase of dance, music, and theater that can only happen at YBCA. For Transform Fest Fall 2017, YBCA engaged nine prolific Bay Area dance companies and choreographers to respond to the provocation, “Why Citizenship?” in one of YBCA’s most ambitious dance productions ever.
