5th Annual Baile en la Calle: The Mural Dances // SF

5th Annual Baile en la Calle: The Mural Dances // SF

Brava! for Women in the Arts’ annual event takes over the streets and alleys of San Francisco’s Mission District to celebrate and preserve its living cultural heritage!

Now in its fifth year, Baile en la Calle: The Mural Dances draws the Bay Area’s most dynamic dance companies and performing artists to interpret the murals through music and dance, alongside detailed narration by Precita Eyes Muralists docents. Baile en la Calle: The Mural Dances provides audiences an intricate look at each mural and its relationship to the culture and the life of the Mission. This year’s tour includes a new mural at Red Poppy Art House commemorating the lives of young men lost recently to police shootings and two classic Mission murals at Cesar Chavez Elementary schools. Professional American Sign Language interpreters will be on hand to facilitate communication across Deaf and hearing cultures.
