Wells and Hermesdorf first moved to SF together 25 years ago as two young artists, engaged to be married and ambitious to start their dance careers. Half of that worked out with Danceground as their launch pad. The new piece revisits their last collaboration 20 years ago when they danced with tape measures. Reworking this piece in the context of eviction and the struggle to make a career out of dance, the tape measure evokes metaphors for measuring time passed, the high commodity of physical space, and what has been lost and gained through the years. Looking back on our careers, we ask each other, "was that good for you?".   

Also, on the bill will be Wells' Ballistic2, an updated, restaged Izzy Award winner and audience favorite. With it's spectacular visuals and over-the-top finale Ballistic2 is perfect dance for the 25th Anniversary.

Featuring Dance Mission's Grrrl Brigade, Jr Grrrl Brigade and Youth Program classes, The Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie is a twist on the Nutcracker classic. The culturally and politically infused story-line includes youth ages 5-18yrs. that inspire us to continue fighting for peace, diversity and social equality! The story opens in the home of Mr. & Mrs. McGreed (the richest people in town). We go on a journey with Clara (the maid) and Drosselmyer (the rebellious daughter) to discover that what makes us truly rich is following our dreams and creating a global community where all cultures and people can thrive.
