Price Transparency
The SFIHHDF has always been committed to keeping ticket prices as low as possible. Your ticket helps cover the cost of rising theatre rental fees, production staff, and artist stipends, travel, and food. However, ticket proceeds do not fully cover all the expenses required to present this world class event. Ticket prices would triple if we relied solely on ticket sales to keep the DanceFest alive. If you would like to help the SFIHHDF continue to thrive, Please donate here - We truly appreciate your support!

B-Boy Spaghetti (Norway)
A tribute to Hip Hop and the values in the Hip Hop culture that has inspired Navid (B-Boy Spagetti) and given him a deeper connection to the impact that this culture has had in the life of many people around the world.

Mozaik (New York)
"Sad Hope"
Have you ever wondered if your love is enough? Have you ever quietly wished for something outside of your grasp?

Str8Jacket (San Mateo)
An exploration of different dance styles to portray an aggressive militaristic theme. An antagonistic tone draws you into the grim universe where everyone is forced to fight to survive. A variety of styles are utilized; including waacking, housing, femme, and urban choreography.

Krazy 8 (San Mateo)
"Umbrella Academy"
Hidden abilities of regular children.

Underground Dance Providers (Paris)
"The further you dance, the more you’re free"
Starting with an ode to the time where all these freestyle dances were just call 'Clubbing' or 'Performance', this show transports us into clubbing culture from the past, to the present then to the future...
A unique fusion of House Dance, Voguing, Hip Hop and Waacking.

AMS (Montreal)
"Alone Part1"
Socially connected, practically alone, mentally disturbed!

Hungry Sharks (Austria)
"The sky above, the mud below"
In her performance, hip-hop dancer Farah Deen explores new ground, both in terms of her individual technique and innovative approach. She ventures out into a theatrical context rather unusual in urban dance and sets off on a journey through the fields of tension arising from religion and femininity.

Chicago Dance Crash (Chicago)
"The two inside"
Based off the folk story of a man who says "There are within me two dogs. One of them is good and one of them is evil. They are constantly fighting" When asked which one wins he replies "The one I feed the most.”

Program B
Saturday, November 23, 8:00 PM
Sunday, November 24, 5:00 PM

B-Boy Spaghetti (Norway)
"Where is Home"
Home, Not a structure. Where I can fall, but dare to stand up. Where I can uplift. Where barriers want me to push and break them.
State of mind, Belonging. At home, I daydream, At home I build me, At home, I feel free!

Hungry Sharks (Austria)
An urban dance theatre piece about us dealing with virtual worlds.Technology gets faster and better. The flood of information hitting us everyday increases continuously and infinite possibilities of global networking can be accessed anywhere, anytime; to our advantage and disadvantage. What drives us to check our smartphones all day? What importance has a virtual profile in reality? Are we just shadows of ourselves?These questions guide the five performers through #fomo. Within the piece they experience constructive and destructive aspects of virtuality. On stage they create characters, drama and scenes through the urban dance styles Breaking, Popping, Locking, HipHop-Freestlye and House.

AMS (Montreal)
"Alone part 2"
Autophobia: the fear of abandonment.

Stuck Sanders (Bay Area)
"Blood on the Leaves"
The power of art will allow you to free yourself, physically & mentally. An ode to love, hate and forgiveness.

Chicago Dance Crash (Chicago)
"Leap Of Faith"
Loosely inspired by the rap lyrics from a Clipping song in which he describes a captive passenger awakening and realizing he must choose between a life of imprisonment or an escape that could result in death. In playing with that concept, "Leap of Faith" speaks to our need to shake up our situation in life in order to gain a new perspective and ultimately achieve true freedom.

SoulForce Dance Company (San Francisco)
"Arrest the President"
An exasperated attempt to express the weighted feeling toward the current “occupant" of the White House.

Mozaik (New York)
When three seemingly disparate individuals are placed together in a new environment, imaginative discoveries often result.

Underground Dance Providers (Paris)
"Triangulum Australe"
An invitation into space, transcending the energy of Voguing, Waacking and House Dance and gives a powerful gesture the afro futuristique aim of techno music.
A unique fusion of House Dance, Voguing, Hip Hop and Waacking.

Ambiance Facil (Paris)
"Performance #2"
