500 Capp Street, Asian Pacific Cultural Center (APICC), and Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) co-presents Being, Belonging & Beyond – SF Bay Area AAPI Dance Film Festival. Curated by APICC and Megan Lowe Dances, screenings will include dance films by Lenora Lee Dance, Sammay Dizon, Alleluia Panis, Melissa Lewis Wong, and culminates in the world premiere screening of HOME(in)STEAD, a site-specific dance work by 500 Capp Street artists-in-residence Megan Lowe and Johnny Huy Nguyen—a performance that utilizes the historical David Ireland House as a visceral canvas for exploring means of feeling, finding, creating, and healing home through dynamic architecture-oriented movement and intimate contact partnering supported by original music by trascriptions01, text, and installation.
The finale screening will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A with all participating artists and their collaborators, celebrating the lineage of AAPI performing artists in the Bay Area that are documenting dance and movement in film/video as a way to create conversations about the experiences of AAPI communities and the ways they are reflecting upon and honoring their cultural heritages.
This film festival is also part of CAAMFest and APICC’s 26th United States of Asian America Festival (USAAF).
*Audience members are welcome to come and go for any portion of the program as they please.
