Bandelion and the CSUEB Inclusive Interdisciplinary Ensemble present a series of experimental performance events that weave together dance, music, theater, bodywork, napping, projections, community gathering, play, inquiry, discussion, meditation, healing, jam session, Shabbat service, choose-your-own-adventure, hanging out, and whatever inspirations you bring! One Friday each month, 6:30 – 10pm in CSUEB’s Dance Studio, Room PE 140

We Are All Dragons in Drag
Bandelion’s latest performance experiment, interweaving an alternative creation myth suggesting immortal dragons living within every human being, waiting for the times when the world is out of balance to emerge and set things right, with explorations of Drag based on teachings by Stephen Levine (“We are all just God in drag,”) and RuPaul (“We’re all born naked and the rest is drag.”)
Directed/Choreographed by Eric Kupers and created collaboratively by Bandelion: Bruce Bierman, Dannia Ciolo, Chris Gallegos, Dawn Holtan, Corissa “Reese” Johnson, Nils Jorgensen, Eric Kupers, Amy Marie, Keith Penney, Frances Sedayao, and Deborah Trudell. With guest artists Raven Malouf-Renning, Jasprit Singh and Masa Fukuizumi and LEEP Taiko.
Presented as part of the 2018 San Francisco International Arts Festival.
