SOULSKIN Dance on KALW Open Air. ​This week on Open Air, host David Latulippe talks to Adrianna Thompson, artistic director and founder of SOULSKIN Dance, about the company’s 3rd San Francisco season, ‘A Pop Culture Journey: from Folsom Prison to a Night at the Opera’, featuring music from Johnny Cash and Queen, this weekend at Dance Mission Theater.

San Francisco Chronicle - March 16, 2016

"Soulskin Dance to take fans on A Pop Culture Journey." It might be hard to imagine taking a train from Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” into Queen’s “Bohemian” world, but that collision and collusion of memories and music is at the heart of choreographer Adrianna Thompson’s vision for “A Pop Culture Journey: From Folsom Prison to a Night at the Opera,” which her company Soulskin Dance presents this weekend at Dance Mission Theater.

San Francisco Chronicle - March 10, 2015

​"SOULSKIN Dance Puts the Pop in Dance." The young dancers of Soulskin Dance might never have seen the high-octane lunacy of Iggy Pop in person, but there is a certain head-banging drive in the San Francisco Dance Center studios where they’re rehearsing Adrianna Thompson’s “A Pop Culture Journey Part II: From Funk to Punk,” which the company will perform at the Joe Goode Annex in San Francisco this weekend.

SF Weekly - March 15, 2013

"Downtown Funk." The program is a little bit retro, a little bit kitsch as choreographer Adrianna Thompson puts together an old-school playlist of groovy tunes for A Pop Culture Journey Part II: From Funk to Punk, the second part of her paean to the rhythm of modernity.
