TENDER (n): a person who takes charge

Coming June, 2018

Celebrating 100 years of outcast 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.” 

 

THE WAIT ROOM
Robert
Rauschenberg Foundation Artist as Activist Fellow

2017 – 2019
More details coming soon!

Flyaway is proud to announce that Artistic Director Jo Kreiter is the first choreographer named as a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation 2017 Artist as Activist Fellow. As part of a two-year grant, Jo’s work, along with the other fellows’ work, will encourage people to move beyond awareness and take action on the injustices that mass incarceration causes generations of immigrants and people of color in the United States.

The Wait Room is a dance performance installation that exposes the physical, psychic, and emotional burden of incarceration for women with imprisoned loved ones. Via a series of custom-made chairs suspended by a counterweight system, the project invokes the balancing act women have to maintain when stripped of emotional and economic support from their partners and family.
