The Global Street Dance Masquerade presents A Grande March at SOMArts
May 6, 2017, 8–10pm
SOMArts, 934 Brannan Street
SOMArts is proud to partner with The Global Street Dance Masquerade to present A Grand March at SOMArts on Saturday, May 6. This site-specific dance performance is the culmination of Global Street Dance Masquerade Artistic Director Rashad Pridgen’s year-long residency at SOMArts and will include photo and video documentation from The Black Lives Masquerade and A Masquerade 4 Prince.
The Grand March at SOMArts was developed by Pridgen and an ensemble cast of performers as part of a year-long residency at SOMArts. The performance will begin at 8:00 pm at SOMArts.
Incorporating contemporary street dance practices from around the world into the ancient tradition of masquerading, the Global Street Dance Masquerade reveals the influence of the African diaspora in traditional and contemporary dance techniques.
