Dance Anywhere Hits Bay Area March 30 – The Bay Citizen

Dance Anywhere Hits Bay Area March 30


As we learned in last week’s culture story about conceptual art, the art world has not always welcomed the medium with open arms. Traditional venues balked at the performance heavy works that defied convential genres. But, now, “conceptual” is a selling point — Dance Anywhere, billed as a “conceptual public art performance piece” is in its eighth year and will hit the Bay Area (and the rest of the world) on March 30.

The brainchild of Bay Area-based artist and dancer Beth Fein, the event coordinates dance happenings across the globe. Some will feature established dancers and dance troupes, others will be more flash-mob in their execution, and still others will be off the cuff — participants are encouraged to dance on their lunch break, for instance.

Bay Area Dance Anywhere events are scheduled for noon, and include free performances at locales from the Oakland Museum of California to a downtown San Francisco rooftop, featuring performers like Push Dance Co., ODC Dance Commons, Alyce Finwall Dance Theatre and more.
