FUGUE is an immersive dance theater work that traverses through the streets and stories of San Francisco’s Mission District. Follow us on a quest to an extraordinary lost city. 

December 1-10, 2017

Inspired by our year-long community-based research process into the queer histories of San Francisco streets, FUGUE is a foray into cultural amnesia, featuring forgotten stories of queers, people of color and long-time SF residents. Directors Eric Garcia and Kat Cole are interviewing folks about their nostalgias and utopian yearnings. Their stories will be folded into the performance.

The city, however, does not tell you its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls.
