Spring Performance Season - 2019

May 09 2019 — May 18 2019
One month. Three electrifying shows. All uniquely YBCA.

YBCA is excited to present a robust schedule of spring-season performances in the month of May, including the San Francisco premiere of ETM: Double Down with award-winning tap-dance company Dorrance Dance; new multidisciplinary theater work We Have Iré with award-winning poet, performance artist, and playwright Paul S. Flores; and a series of electrifying performances by local acts in A Tribute to A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders with popular grassroots collective UnderCover Presents.

The curation of this year’s spring performances showcases transnational genres of tap dance, jazz, Afro-Cuban folklore, and hip-hop, exploring their historical impact on American culture. Celebrating percussive and rhythmic styles of the past, these genres reveal stories that break down barriers, speak to our human condition and capture our imagination – in true YBCA fashion. Witness this incredible lineup of both local and national artists on our stage this May.
