RAWdance, in partnership with TJPA’s Salesforce Park, premieres “Portal“, a free, public, site-specific live performance, which transforms the elevated garden into a multimedia ecosystem animated by evocative movement and physical storytelling.
Envisioned by Co-Artistic Director Katerina Wong with mixed media artist Ephraim Colbert, “Portal” investigates the intersections of skyscrapers and gardens, migration and stagnation, and belonging and isolation after an unprecedented year of collective challenge.
The park’s landscape will come alive through dynamic contemporary dance, text, lighting installation, video, and a layered soundscore to generate a dreamlike sensorial experience.

The first site-specific dance performance at Salesforce Park since its inception, “Portal” will take audiences on a journey from one end of the public park to the other, illuminating the landscaping and architecture with movement by six stellar Bay Area dance artists. Rooted in our shared recent experiences during the pandemic, “Portal” offers a space to process and reflect as a community, reimagine our collective hopes and dreams, and recommit ourselves to a future of progress through imagination.
Salesforce Park’s unique location brings together the city’s vibrant and diverse communities, from technologists to artists, from locals to visitors, in a shared artistic gathering space. Audiences of all ages are welcomed and encouraged to attend. Please note, seating will be limited, and audiences will be asked to stand and mobilize throughout the Park for the majority of the one-hour long performance. City-mandated Covid protocols will be in place to ensure the safety of audiences and performers.
“Portal” is supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
