detour dance presents FUGUE, an intimate traveling performance throughout San Francisco's Mission District. Follow us on a quest to an extraordinary lost city.

December 1-10, 2017

FUGUE is being developed through a year-long community-based research process. Directors Eric Garcia and Kat Cole are interviewing long-time San Francisco residents 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.
