Each year Epiphany Productions transforms the City’s streets into stages through 9th Annual San Francisco Trolley Dances, a series of free contemporary dance performances along the T Metro line through the city’s southeastern neighborhoods and on to several performance sites in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood.

For the price of a muni ticket (or a fast pass) see an extraordinary lineup of Bay Area dance luminaries performing outdoor, site-specific work.

2012 Trolley Dances

Tours start every 45 Minutes – from 11am to 2:45p
– Starting Point – Intersection for the Arts (5th and Mission)
– FREE but Muni ticket required (either a fastpass or $2 Muni Ticket)

This year’s performers include The Carpetbag Brigade, whose stilt-walking and lively physical theater delight audiences around the globe; the acclaimed Campo Sant in collaboration with dance company Mix’d Ingrdnts and accompanied by live music; the “roof-raising” Diamano Coura West African Dance Company; Anne Bluethenthal and Dancers, KULARTS Philippine Performance Arts with Alleluia Panis; and Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater at City College Evans Campus and others.

All Trips Start in SoMa at 5th and Mission: All trips begin at the Intersection for the Arts and the 5M Project in the San Francisco Chronicle building at Fifth and Mission, make their way through downtown to the Powell Street Muni station, continue on the T line to Bayview-Hunters Point.
– Performances are free, aside from the trolley fare (MUNI Fast Pass; or $2 general ticket)
– Arrive early, space is limited for each train.

To make sure you can see the shows, we advise getting there early, as it’s first come, first served (in past years they have handed out wristbands to early arrivals). So come early  and see these award-winning public dance performances on the move.
