Alchemy Spinning at San Francisco Movement Arts Festival
January 24, 2020, 6:00-8:30pm at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco.
The 6th Annual San Francisco Movement Arts Festival (SFMAF), with over 300+ performers, will celebrate their movement art at the grand Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, on January 24, 2020. The entire Cathedral will transform into a stage – the main floor, attached chapels, hallways, stairways and front entry way. As you enter the inspiring space, multiple STATIONS of the Movement (performances) will be going on simultaneously. Stroll around, at your own pace, witness the artists once, and go back to see some favorites.
“Inner Light” a whirling performance
Spacious Grace Arts Festival
February 22, 2020, 2:30-3pm at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco.
How to face the reality of our climate crisis? As we witness the unraveling of our world, how can we connect with our emotions individually and collectively? When the lights around us go out, where can we find a source of hope?
This performance is a whirling dance improvisation Alchemy Spinning by Raquel Santiago that talks about one of the most challeging events of our time, climate change, and how to open our hearts to the emotions that climate change creates around us and take actions to change and transform our reality.
This event is part of Spacious Grace, the cathedral’s annual free-form arts festival when we remove the pews and invoke the muse. Now in its sixth year, Spacious Grace runs from February 7 to 22.
This is a donation based performance, you can get your tickets here or at the door.
