Join us for this evening-length work. SBDP fills the rooms of Shawl-Anderson Dance Center with a performance about the variety and emotional complexity of the places and states we call Home. With humor, tenderness and grace, this intergenerational cast of Bay Area beloveds embodies members of a family, revisiting the original choreography alongside new pieces and adaptations. This work reminds us of the importance of human connection as our present day national narrative echoes that of a decade ago. Join SBDP this holiday season on a journey that explores the intersections of HOME as self, a place, a feeling, something remembered, longed for, or imagined.
Sarah Bush Dance Project is a contemporary dance company based in Oakland, CA.

Sarah Bush Dance Project (SBDP) formed in 2007 to promote innovative artistry, community interaction and feminist ideals through the creation and presentation of multimedia dance, as interpreted by the artistic work and vision of Sarah Bush.

Early press deemed Bush:
“A force to be reckoned with” (SF Chronicle)
“A modern dance bellwether” (SF Weekly)
and later gave critical acclaim for Rocked By Women:
“a monumental work” (The Huffington Post)
“a weighty yet explosive expression of the power of an indomitable spirit and embracing courage” (SF Bay Guardian)
SBDP’s recent project This Land brought together two great sources of inspiration: Art and Nature. In This Land Oakland, SBDP called us back to this incredible landscape of Oakland, from the developed and designed to its watery edges, enchanted redwoods and scenic hills.
“Against these spectacular, constantly shifting backdrops, infiltrated by ambient sounds and intentional music, the drama of Bush’s highly charged movement is meant to renew our sense of self, our sense of place and community.”
