Thank you for making The People's Palace a success! 

We are deeply grateful to everyone who made this project so meaningful — from all of our artistic collaborators, our funders, the staff at City Hall, and our beloved community who attended and joined us. 

Co-presented by Dancers' Group and Zaccho Dance Theatre, The People's Palace was a special 3-day artistic intervention with San Francisco City Hall’s Beaux-Arts Roman and Greek iconography. Aerialists and performers interacted 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. 

Thank you so much for attending this free performance! Your generous post-show, tax-deductible donations will directly support the creative work of our collaborators.


Conceived and directed 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, design consultant and fabricator Wayne Campbell, lighting designer Krissy Kenny, projection designer Aron Altmark, costume designer Dana Kawano, indigenous culture bearers Gregg Castro and Jonathan Cordero, and performing artists Veronica Blair, Tristan Ching Hartman, Ciarra D’Onofrio, William Brewton Fowler, Jr., Jocelyn Reyes, Nina Sawant, Saharla Vetsch, and The Skywatchers Ensemble.
