“Rotunda Dance Series” San Francisco City Hall Performance Festival

The “Rotunda Dance Series” is a set of  free monthly dance performances in San Francisco City Hall’s extraordinary rotunda, Dancers’ Group and World Arts West have once again partnered to bring audiences lunchtime glimpses into movement and musical traditions from around the world.

Set amidst the grandeur of San Francisco City Hall’s Rotunda, these free lunchtime presentations bring dance forms from across the globe to this magnificent venue. All performances are free and start at noon.

To kick off the 7th season of the Rotunda Dance Series, Nava Dance Collective will present Transcendence – Charkh e Falak (Turning of The Cosmos), a dance installation in honor of Nowruz (New Day), a celebration of the Spring equinox observed by peoples across the Middle East and Central Asia.

This piece honors the ancient Zoroastrian sun deity, Mithra, and will feature a traditional Iranian Haft-Seen (a ritual altar built in homes during the time of Nowruz), along with an enactment of the rituals performed on Nowruz by Anahita, the ancient Persian goddess of water.
