Born, Never Asked

February 2-4, 2018
Zoë Klein Productions presents
Born, Never Asked
February 2-4
Friday-Saturday; 8pm, Sunday; 7pm


TICKETS: $18 in adv / $25 at the door. Advanced tix available at Logo for Brown Paper Tickets, link to purchase tickets. or by calling 1-800-838-3006

Born, Never Asked. is an auto-biographical acrobatic and aerial dance theater piece and gallery installation that addresses the complexity of international adoption, the importance of origin, and how US privilege glosses over issues of loss, race, genocide of native peoples, immigration, and citizenship. Extraordinary and captivating acrobatic imagery serves as a vessel of the difficult raw truths that international adoptees must face within an anti-immigrant political climate. This performance work is rooted in images of early ancestral body memory and is driven by the core question, how one can achieve wholeness in the face of conflicting loyalties between lands, languages, families and cultures?  Gallery Installation will be in the Dance Mission Lobby.  Post show talk backs with Adoption Museum Project and others.

Performers: Zoë Klein, Andrey Pfening, Hien Huyhn, Jeremy Vik, and Olivas Xedex Renee

Gadar Geet: Blood and Ink
A dance/spoken-word exploration of the Ghadar Party and intersections with contemporary acts of resistance.

In the early 1900s, Joti Singhs great-grandfather lived in San Francisco and was the president of the Ghadar Party, a political party fighting for the independence of India from the British. Blood and Ink overlaps the political action of the Ghadar Party, with present-day activism; linking the Ghadar partys strategic diversity with todays uniting of minority movements. The performance uses Bhangra dance, music, and spoken-word to explore its themes.

Zindagi Ek Safar
Bhangra/Bollywood/Dancehall/Afro-Pop. Explore the history of Duniyas repertoire with some of our favorite pieces

Wahkily
Live West African dance and drumming
