In 2024, GIRLFLY will return to the Tenderloin and CounterPulse in San Francisco, where we’ll explore the intersections between gender justice and living unhoused.

No prior arts experience is required. Plus, Earn $500!

Read the Detailed Board Description

Flyaway and women with incarcerated loved ones featured in THE NATION.

Thanks to Rachel Zarrow and Christopher Blackwell for their journalism.

"Kreiter explores this destabilization, as well as the dehumanization of incarceration, through her art. As an aerial choreographer for her dance company, Flyaway Productions, Kreiter aims to explore the range and power of female physicality. Even before her husband’s incarceration, her work existed at the intersection of social justice and acrobatic spectacle, yet her family’s experience with the criminal justice system affected her work, as it transformed her into someone who was “inside the lens,” as she puts it."
