“The Wait Room” Outdoor Aerial Dance | SF
Flyaway’s The Wait Room, a site-specific dance honoring women with incarcerated loved ones, premieres April 19-27, 2019 in San Francisco.
The Wait Room, created in partnership with Essie Justice Group, is a performance installation that exposes the physical, psychic, and emotional burden of incarceration for women with imprisoned loved ones. Via a large, rolling set designed by Sean Riley to evoke a prison visiting room, the project invokes the balancing act women have to maintain when stripped of emotional and economic support from their partners and family.
Tickets are free for this outdoor performance, but seating is finite. Seating is offered on a first come, first serve basis for 250 people. The performance takes place at 1125 Market Street, San Francisco, CA, across from Civic Center (between 7th Street & 8th Street).
