December 1 - 10, 2017
Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church
455 Fair Oaks Street, San Francisco


Fugue is a site-specific dance theater work that traverses through the streets and stories of San Francisco’s Mission District. Inspired by a 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. Follow us on a quest to an extraordinary lost city. 

Before purchasing a ticket to Fugue, here are a few IMPORTANT things to consider:

1) There is absolutely NO LATE SEATING. Please plan on arriving 15 minutes before the start of the show.

2) We recommend you buy your tickets in advance. Audience capacity is extremely limited and tickets will sell out quickly.

3) The performance travels through San Francisco's Mission District and takes place both indoors and outdoors. You will be STANDING and WALKING (and yes, sitting) for long periods of time. Fugue will happen RAIN OR SHINE.

4) Please contact us for wheelchair accessibility information at detourdance@gmail.com

5) NO ONE TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS. Please email us at detourdance@gmail.com if you need assistance purchasing a ticket to this performance!

6) The evening begins at Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church (455 Fair Oaks Street, San Francisco). The evening ends at a location near by.
