Cultures Crossing
Purple Moon Dance Project
Thursday-Friday, May 30-31; 8 pm
Location: SomArts, 934 Brannan @ 8th St


Purple Moon Dance Project showcases the works of PMDP Core Artists Alena Cawthorne and Frances Sedayao and other emerging artists in an evening of intersecting dance traditions—from Filipino folk to West African and American modern. “Defining our way of life—sometimes against others’ perceptions of us—we are exploring our cultural traditions, the way they influence our lives, and how they affect are relations to others. Crossing cultures to strengthen our own sense of self.”
