In their eighth season presenting free monthly dance performances in San Francisco City Hall’s extraordinary Rotunda, Dancers’ Group and World Arts West continue their partnership to bring audiences lunchtime glimpses into movement and musical traditions from around the world.
This March, Dance Generators presents its latest playful dance-theater work Base Ten, revealing how numeric systems evolved because of our two hands and ten fingers, and considers the linguistic, mathematical, historical and social ramifications of this non-coincidence.
Dance Generators company members range in age from teens to those in their eighties. Through dance, the company shatters commonly held stereotypes about aging, and creates bridges between people of all ages. A part of the USF Dance Program in the Department of Performing Arts & Social Justice, Dance Generators is celebrating 10 years in San Francisco under the direction of Natalie Greene.
The Rotunda Dance Series brings many of the Bay Area’s most celebrated dance companies to San Francisco City Hall for free monthly noon-time performances and is presented by Dancers’ Group and World Arts West in partnership with Grants for the Arts and SF City Hall.
The 2018 Rotunda Dance Series will continue on Friday, April 27 with the Kick-Off of Bay Area Dance Week.
Dance Generators (dancegenerators.or
Dance Generators aims to stretch audiences’ definitions of dance by presenting highly physical, theatrical and site-specific performance that is created through multi-generational collaboration. Together, the company disrupts preconceived notions about who gets to dance, where dances take place, and what dances are about. Throughout this anniversary year, the company is exploring how the human body relates to the history of counting.
