Zaccho Dance Theatre


Aerialist Veronica Blair at Grace Cathedral

Join Zaccho Dance Theatre in experiencing Love, a state of grace, a live multidisciplinary site-specific installation at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral.

Directed and choreographed by Joanna Haigood, Love, a state of grace will feature some of the Bay Area’s most talented aerial performers who will interact with original set pieces created by collaborating designers Wayne Campbell and Sean Riley -- including an anchored 90-foot ladder and 70-foot swing, each a unique response to the rhythms and height of Grace Cathedral's Gothic design. Composer Walter Kitundu's sound score will incorporate recorded material, the activation of live acoustic instruments within the space, the Cathedral's massive pipe organ, and voices of a small choir, all in conversation with the Cathedral's cavernous interior space and prolonged reverberation.

Performance Dates & Times:

Friday, February 11 -- 1pm to 4pm
Saturday, February 12 -- 4pm to 7pm
Thursday, February 17 -- 1pm to 4pm
Friday, February 18 -- 7pm to 10pm

Love, a state of grace is intended to create a shared experience through reflection and dialogue that will reaffirm the role of kindness, compassion, love, and righteous social action in the national healing process. 

As an audience member, you are invited to move freely within Grace Cathedral to experience this epic event. The performance will be presented in one hour cycles repeated over 3 hours. 

We will also be hosting community discussion panels with ASL interpreters following the performances on February 12th at 7:15pm and February 17th at 4:15pm.
