2019 San Francisco Trolley Dances | October 19-20

Each year, Epiphany Productions transforms the city’s streets into stages through San Francisco Trolley Dances, a series of free contemporary dance performances along a Muni line.

RSVP for your Tour – 2019 Event: Dance performance and more along the historic J-Church trolley route.

San Francisco Trolley Dances, now in its 16th anniversary season, is a two-day, free (with Muni fare) public performance curated by Epiphany Dance Theater artistic director Kim Epifano.

Artists and dance ensembles are paired with specific sites along San Francisco’s MUNI route, where they are invited to create an 8- to 15-minute dance piece in response to the physical environment, architecture and history of the area.

Participating companies include dawnsondancesf, GERALDCASELDANCE, Guillermo Galindo, Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company, MoToR/dance, SoulForce, plus a preview of Epiphany Dance Theater’s evening-length Rock & Mortar, premiering at Z Space in December.
