Zaccho Dance Theatre



Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity to celebrate our humanity. On this day, November 28th, we encourage you to support the causes you care about, the causes that impact community, and those that make a difference.

During this season of giving, Zaccho Dance Theatre has launched a GoFundMe Campaign to support our next site-specific performance work, The People's Palace

Co-presented by Zaccho Dance Theatre and Dancers Group, The People’s Palace is a new site-specific installation performance inside San Francisco’s iconic City Hall scheduled to premiere in May 2024.

The People’s Palace is an artistic intervention with City Hall’s Beaux-Arts Roman and Greek iconography. Aerialists and performers will interact with the architecture and large scale projections, transforming these symbols into new, more inclusive narratives that more accurately reflect San Francisco's diverse and dynamic cultures and community. Through performance, music, storytelling, and immersive technologies, The People’s Palace invites the audience to actively engage these new narratives, to see themselves within the broader context of the city, and to appreciate the richness of diverse perspectives.

Your tax-deductible donation will directly benefit The People's Palace’s creative collaborators!

Directed and choreographed by Joanna Haigood, this work is being developed in collaboration with composer Marcus Shelby, visual artist Mildred Howard, scenic designer Sean Riley, rigging designer David Freitag, lighting designer Krissy Kenny, projection designer Aron Altmark, indigenous culture bearers Gregg Castro and Jonathan Cordero, and performing artists Veronica Blair, Ciarra D’Onofrio, Erik Lee, Nina Sawant, Saharla Vetsch, Tristan Ching Hartman, Jocelyn Reyes, and The Skywatchers Ensemble.

Take action this Giving Tuesday and give to Zaccho Dance Theatre today.

With Gratitude,

Joanna and the Zaccho Team
