HERO

World Premiere: September 7, 2018

Dance Mission Theater, San Francisco, CA

HERO is a politically themed ballet that poses the question: What defines a hero? When a young woman unexpectedly receives a message from faraway, a doorway mysteriously reveals itself. An odyssey of the individual merging with the universal ( and vice versa) is the parallel realm that envelops her, testing her fortitude through longing and love, struggle and salvation, loss and remembrance. At once mystical and mundane, HERO explores the multitude of roles the hero plays in our everyday, extra-ordinary lives.

Satin & Swing

World Premiere: March 10, 2017

Dance Mission Theater, San Francisco, CA

Artistic Director and Choreographer Adrianna Thompson seeks to engage audiences in a study of two eras, the 1920s and the present. Dance Mission Theatre transforms into a time machine, transporting us back to the 1920s. Glitz and glam sparkle from the dingy corners of a speakeasy. Raucous jazz blares, bringing bejeweled and sequined dancing flapper girls to life. An evening of indulgence has begun.
