Kathleen Hermesdorf FRESH Festival

January 3, 2022 @ 10:00 am - January 16, 2022 @ 10:00 pm


The Kathleen Hermesdorf FRESH Festival is a dynamic annual platform for experimental dance, music, and performance in Yelamu, Ramaytush Ohlone territory, (San Francisco, CA).

FRESH was founded in 2009 by Kathleen Hermesdorf (1967-2020) in collaboration with Albert Mathias. In the wake of  Kathleen’s recent and unexpected passing, a team of longtime FRESH fans and collaborators, have stepped up to honor the festival’s legacy and lead it into the future.

The 2022 festival’s theme is Collectiveness. It will feature virtual practices, performances, exchanges, collective actions, movie screenings, and parties! They are excited to start the New Year in conversation and practice together. They are honored to present work by emerging, established, local and global artists of multiple identities, because they believe that the interdependence of generations, backgrounds, and artistic fields creates a more powerful, sustainable and dynamic arts ecosystem.

They invite you to gather this January 3-16 to honor what was lost and dream into the future together.

Visit the website to view and register for the practices, exchanges, and performances!

All events will follow current Covid protocols and masking requirements in order to keep each other safe!
