ZiRu Dance announces the Third Annual Silicon Valley Dance Festival, entitled Renewal, presented via livestream December 19-20 and continuing on demand through January 3.
Renewal is a year-long project of ZiRu Dance consisting of two festivals — December 2020 and March 2021 — workshop classes, and international cultural exchange focused on positive growth, healing, and equity while helping to dispel xenophobia and feelings of isolation as a result of Covid-19.
The December 19 virtual Mainstage festival program features two world premieres by ZiRu Dance and the work of seven featured choreographers, including five BIPOC artists: Philein Wang of ZiRu Dance (Redwood City); Robert Moses of Robert Moses’ KIN (San Francisco); ADIYA of BeijingDance/LDTX (Beijing, China); Brenda Way and KT Nelson of ODC/Dance (San Francisco); Sidra Bell of Sidra Bell Dance New York; and Jennifer Archibald for AXIS Dance Company (Oakland).
The Emerging Choreographers program on December 20 features the work of Melecio Estrella and Tassiana Willis (BANDALOOP), Eric Garcia, Charles Roy Jr., and world premieres by Vincent Chavez, and Miche Wong and Jaime Garcia Castilla.
