Submitted by the Event Organizer
Zaccho Dance Theatre will perform the world premiere of Sailing Away, a site-specific dance performance on Market Street exploring the history of African Americans’ early contributions to the development of San Francisco.
Market Street will provide the backdrop as performers enact historical narratives through a series of gestures and activities incorporating sites and monuments located between Powell and First streets. Through character interactions, audience members will get a feel for 19th-century commercial life on the city’s most important thoroughfare, which was once home to myriad African American-owned enterprises.
