FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL

Our annual festival of transgender and queer performance is celebrated for its innovation and artistic excellence. The only event of its kind in US, the Fresh Meat Festival features the nation’s leading transgender and queer dance, theater, music and multi-disciplinary performance artists. Advance tickets are recommended for the Fresh Meat Festival (always the third weekend of June), as this popular event sells out quickly.

SEAN DORSEY DANCE

Our resident dance company Sean Dorsey Dance performs Artistic Director Sean Dorsey’s award-winning choreography at home and on tour. Named “San Francisco’s Best Dance Company” (SF Weekly) and in the nation’s “Top 25 To Watch” (Dance Magazine), Dorsey is the nation’s first acclaimed transgender contemporary dance choreographer. Sean Dorsey Dance’s Home Season in San Francisco is in April/May, and the company is available for national and international tour bookings. Sean Dorsey Dance’s show THE MISSING GENERATION is currently touring to 20 cities across the US and Canada.  www.seandorseydance.com
