Modern Dance in San Francisco in the Summer
Posted May 16th, 2012 - 11:25 am by from Amsterdam, Netherlands (Permalink)
Hi all,


We are Modern Dance fans; if we had our way, we would be in the theatre every day (though ice cream for dessert each evening may be a bit much), but you catch my drift....


A few years ago, during the Hans van Manen Festival in Amsterdam, we saw the San Francisco Ballet and were very impressed. I've already checked, there are no performances during our stay in San Francisco this summer, to be more specific: we will be in the city from July 28 till August 1st. During that short span we would like to attend a Modern Dance performance (or several if possible). It needn't be a big company; we love smaller gigs as well.

Now, in Amsterdam (where we live) there is a City Arts Calendar, which you can check the dates and buy tickets online, etc. San Francisco being so close to Silicon Valley, I can only imagine there to be something similar in this city, but can't find it.


So in short: we are looking for Modern Dance performances in the San Francisco Bay Area between July 27 and August 1, 2012. I would define Modern Dance as the work of choreographers like George Balanchine, William Forsythe, Pina Bausch, Hans van Manen, Jiřy Kylián, Sol Leon/Paul Lightfoot, Michael Schumacher (noooooo, not the Formula 1 driver, the Dancer!!), etc. and their successors...


Anyone got any thoughts? Websites to visit?


Thanx in advance,




Thom
