The theme for Dance Mission’s 2019 D.I.R.T. Festival is storm SURGE. The D.I.R.T. Festival, or Dance In Revolt(ing) Times, is a social political dance festival in its 4th year. D.I.R.T. presents the work of artists that explicitly address local/global challenges through their creative process. This year, pieces that explore ideas and concerns surrounding Global Warming and the displacement that is happening as a result of environmental change will be given greater consideration. Artists from island nations are especially encouraged to apply. Please note that while the focus is on Bay Area artists, non-Bay Area artists are also welcome to apply. Artists ARE paid.
