Sarah Bush Dance Project (SBDP) formed under the artistic vision of Sarah Bush in 2007 to promote innovative artistry, community interaction, and feminist ideals through the creation and presentation of multimedia dance. SBDP creates dance that reminds audiences of the power and compassion in ourselves and others, bolstering a resilient hope for humanity.
SBDP has created four critically acclaimed repertory shows in the Bay Area: Home, Rocked by Women, This Land, and Spirit & Bones. The Huffington Post said of the outdoor landscape series, This Land, “the drama of Bush’s highly charged movement is meant to renew our sense of self, our sense of place and community.” The SF Bay Guardian reviewed Rocked by Women, a coming of age story honoring the history of women’s music, as “a weighty yet explosive expression of the power of an indomitable spirit and embracing courage.” A Homeward audience member reflected, “Homeward stirred memories and longings for relationship, for meaning, for home. Such a feast of choreography.” Most recently, of our sold-out Spirit & Bones premiere, the SF Chronicle said, “Dance makers want to reflect the zeitgeist in their productions. But every so often the planets align, and a long-planned work ends up tapping the cultural climate so aptly that it doubles as a rallying cry.”
