TENDER (n): a person who takes charge

Coming June, 2018

Celebrating 100 years of outlaw activism in the Tenderloin

In collaboration with the Tenderloin Museum, Code Tenderloin and Asian Art Museum, Flyaway offers  a new site specific, off the ground dance on the Cadillac Hotel above the Tenderloin Museum on the corner of Eddy and Leavenworth Streets. The dance takes a historical lens on both the isolation and stamina that have impacted the Tenderloin over the last 100 years. It celebrates the outcasts who have defied convention here and the unlikely activists who have sought, in almost every decade, to create a desirable place to live and thrive. In the words of Tenderloin Housing Clinic founder Randy Shaw:

“Those fighting to prevent powerful interests from transforming the Tenderloin have included prostitutes, madams, gamblers, SRO tenants, seniors, transgender women, gay rights activists, welfare recipients, disabled persons and Southeast Asian Refugees. It’s hard to believe that these constituencies could overcome daily newspapers, real estate investors, public officials and San Francisco’s social and economic elite to preserve the affordability of an area adjacent to high-priced Union Square—but they did.”
