SOMArts & The Global Street Dance Masquerade present
The Black Lives Masquerade
Saturday, February 25, 3:00–5:00 pm
SOMArts is proud to partner with Global Street Dance Masquerade artistic director Rashad Pridgen to present The Black Lives Masquerade on Saturday, February 25. Beginning at Zaccho Dance Theatre (1777 Yosemite Ave, San Francisco) at 3:00 pm, this site-specific performance will travel through the Bayview neighborhood to remember and honor those who have been lost to police brutality and injustice. The performance procession will finish at the Bayview Opera House (4705 3rd St) with a community celebration and reception.
Incorporating contemporary street dance practices from around the world into the ancient tradition of masquerading, the Global Street Dance Masquerade reveals the influence of the African diaspora in traditional and contemporary dance techniques — mirroring the unbroken chain of struggle and resilience that we celebrate during Black History/Black Futures Month.
