In 2000, local artist Jessica Dylan Tully developed the performance piece The Right of Return (Bobcat Ballet) as a site-specific ballet with synchronized Bobcat Skid-steer Loaders, choreographed by resident children at the North Beach Housing Development prior to its demolition.

Ten years later Tully, along with longtime collaborator Audio Angel, will perform the next phase of the project as a duet in two Bobcat Loaders inspired by the stories of the former and current residents of the now rebuilt and renamed North Beach Place. Tully, along with SOMArts Cultural Center is inviting those involved with the project to reunite and explore how they were affected by displacement, demolition and their right to return to the newly rebuilt, reorganized and renamed North Beach Place.
