Riding public transportation is often entertaining, but this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 16-17, 2010, dance is taking over the Muni. SF Trolley Dances, a beloved San Francisco event since 2004, takes dance on tour through the streets and open spaces of San Francisco. It’s a chance to view San Francisco’s eclectic urban landscape and some of its most talented performers, and hey, the added bonus of a little fresh air never hurts.
This year’s performers include the internationally renowned Joe Goode Performance Group; award-winning choreographer and director Sara Shelton Mann; Kim Epifano’s Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater, curating the festival and presenting a new site-specific work; Japanese folk dance and music ensemble Ensohza Minyoshu; Christine Bonansea 2×3 Project; Sunset Chinese Folk Dance Group, with other participants to be announced.
Tours leave from the Harvey Milk Center for Recreational Arts at Duboce Park (Scott Street & Duboce Avenue). Tours travel Park to Park on the N Judah MUNI/Metro from Duboce Park to the SF Botanical Garden at Golden Gate Park.
1.5-2 hour guided tours leave every 45 minutes between 11:00 a.m.-2:45 p.m.
Free with a MUNI fast pass or with regular fare: $2.00 for general fare or $.75 for children under 4, seniors, and persons with disabilities. If you don’t have a ticket to ride, you can still enjoy the performances in both parks.
