"San Francisco has beauty, creativity, wonder, fantastic hills, and a several communities of educators committed to our youth. From free tennis programs in McLaren Park, to programs like GIRLFLY, Out of Site, and BAYCAT for teens, San Francisco has tremendous offerings for young people. I have been happy to raise my own child here, and to teach dance to youth from all over the city. Flyaway believes in San Francisco as a place where the arts can advance equity, joy, and deep learning." - Jo Kreiter
We are hiring a college age intern to support our youth arts program. We want to work with a dance artist who is interested in the intersection of performance and community empowerment. The internship includes administrative, artistic, and interpersonal input into the program. The dates are July 5-29, 2022. QBIPOC and people familiar with inner city living particularly encouraged. Stipend of $1500 paid to the intern.
Flyaway is headed to our Residency at Bethany Arts Community in New York
in Partnership with Hudson Link and Sing Sing Prison
Residency Dates: April 18 - April 22, 2022 Open Rehearsal: Friday, April 22 at 3PM
Flyaway will send a week in restorative justice circle, and in creative development for Apparatus of Repair. We are being hosted by Bethany Arts Community and Hudson Link, with gratitude to the National Dance Project for supporting the residency.
"As the dancer moves in and out of the apparatus, from flying to floor, I notice that at moments the mechanics of working with an apparatus are revealed. What a beautiful metaphor for how transformative justice must function - at times we need to see the mechanics of the work to know where we have gone and where we are going. Maybe this is what the dancer sees as her gaze travels both forward and backward on the diagonal toward the apparatus." - Bhumi Patel
