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.

In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.

Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.

The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) on Friday , Nov 1 from 8:00 am – 10:00 pm. Mirta will have Pozole and Mexican chocolate available for purchase in the kitchen. The West Marin Choir will be singing at 7:00 pm. 

On Saturday Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC  will be open from 8:00 am  to 10:00 pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome. 

Please join us for any or all of the celebration you can.
