Bolinas Museum Presents Two Performances By Zaccho Dance Theater

Sunday November 10th , 2019

4:00 pm Free with $10 – $20 suggested donation

Space is limited / Advanced reservations at bolinasmuseum.org

Two performances by Zaccho Dance Theatre
Choreography and Direction by Joanna Haigood / Set Design and Fabrication by Wayne Campbell / Music by jazz composer Marcus Shelby
Performance 1: Saturday, November 9, 7 PM @ Dance Palace, Point Reyes Station
Performance 2: Sunday, November 10, 4 PM @ Bolinas Community Center, Bolinas – Reception follows

This thought-provoking thirty minute contemporary dance performance was commissioned by Oakland’s Equal Justice Society in 2011, and created in response to their campaign to restore 14th Amendment protections for victims of discrimination. This includes those on death row, where there is a disproportionate number of African Americans and people of color. The work is even more powerful today as California moves toward abolishing the death penalty. This program is presented as part the exhibition FOCUS: Joanna Haigood + Wayne Campbell. A community discussion with the artists and experts in the field follows.

Supported by a generous grant from the West Marin Fund and presented as a way to raise awareness of how women such as nationally celebrated dander/choreographer and West Marin resident Joanna Haigood are seeking to address compelling societal issues through the arts.

The Boys Who said NO!

Draft Resistance and the Vietnam War

The Boys Who Said NO! is the little-known story of a small group of courageous citizens who rose up and took decisive action when they saw their government doing terrible wrong. Draft resisters refused military service to bring attention to their cause and let others know they too could resist. Eventually millions of Americans protested in the streets, and the war was ended. For the first time in American history, a citizen uprising forced the government to end a war.

Free Film Screening: Dolores a Rebel.Activist.Feminist.Mother

Friday August 9th, 7:00 pm

Marin County Library presents a Free Film Screening of

Dolores : Rebel Activist Feminist Mother

This film tells the story of Dolores Huerta, among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history.

An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century.
