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 RAWdance and Fauxnique. RAWdance is a contemporary dance company known for transforming theaters and public spaces through a mix of performance, curation, teaching, and collaboration. 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.
