SF Intl. Arts Festival: Nina Haft and Company
Dear Audience Members,
The dance presentations by Nina Haft and Company and Dance Elixir at the San Francisco International Arts Festival will continue as planned. However, it is with regret that we must inform you that the Iraqi Bodies company will not be performing at the Festival this weekend.
Although our petition to the U.S. Government to bring the company here was approved on April 28 and they were interviewed at the U.S. Consulate in Amsterdam on May 13 the final clearance has not been received for two of the four company members. As such, they will not be able to travel to the United States in time to perform for us this weekend.
We are continuing to push for a successful resolution of their case in time for them to travel to Seattle next week, but sadly they will not be performing in San Francisco.
This weekend's schedule of performances at the Southside Theatre will now be as follows:
Fri 3 June, 8pm
Nina Haft & Company T:Here
Dance Elixir Quieting Heart (Lars J. Brouwer - live electronics & Leyya Tawil - dance)
We hope you will still be able to join us for the performances this weekend. If you need to make changes to your order in light of the different program, please call Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006 x.2, or by replying to this email.
For more information on the new program line-up, please call our offices at 415-399-9554.
Thank you again for your support of the Festival.
Andrew Wood Executive Director San Francisco International Arts Festival
Home. Exile. Resistance. An invitation, a landscape, walls, borders and checkpoints. A young life cut short, a funeral. New understandings of resilience in the face of oppression and Israeli occupation. In 2010, Nina Haft & Company traveled to the Middle East, where they met the Palestinian people striving for the right of return to their homes and land of origin. This is our journey.
