This fall's Transform festival is one of YBCA's most ambitious dance productions ever. 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. Nine prolific Bay Area dance companies and choreographers respond to the question, “Why citizenship?” This program is a double bill featuring Embodiment Project and Jesse Hewit. Embodiment Project is a street dance theater company based in San Francisco whose mission is to challenge systemic inequity by exploring issues of trauma, healing, womanist histories, race, and gender role disruption. Jesse Hewit is a performance and dance artist based in San Francisco who creates visual and performative art works as a means to unsettle dominant ideas about power, narrative, safety, and beauty.
