San Francisco Movement Arts Festival
With 200+ Local Artists in Dance, Theater, Music & Visual Arts - SFMAF 2018 is celebrating the movement arts & turning the entire Cathedral into a stage - including the main floor, attached chapels, hallways, stairways and front entry way. As you enter the Cathedral, multiple STATIONS of the Movement (performances) will be going on, simultaneously, throughout the grand church. Stroll around, at your own pace, witness the artists once and go back to see some favorites.

Like going to a Farmer's Market, but instead of produce it's performances.

Each STATION of the Movement (12+) will have up to six groups performing & rotating short pieces (4 minutes or less). Each STATION will be it's own mix repertoire to include modern dance; ballet; ethnic; ballroom dancing; Movement Choirs and much more. In addition, artists will be attacking subjects of female empowerment; artistic beauty; social issues; cultural heritage; personal lost; family love and beyond.

Like getting 12 shows for the price of one!!

There'll be a few visiting local artists from AFAR - New York City; Los Angeles; Chicago; Santa Barbara; Sacramento and others - bringing their local art, to help celebrate our local art in the Bay Area.

There'll be a few female choreographers showing their work - while their own daughters perform in the festival!!

Sisters, performing together in past SFMAF(s), and returning yet again for SFMAF 2018.

There'll be a STATION filled with live musicians and singers - with dancers performing to their music. A "Movement Music Festival within a Movement Arts Festival" A true Festival within a Festival.

SFMAF duration will be less than 2 hours and will be capped off with a brief announcement - followed with the main dance piece, down the center of the church. At the end, you're invited to a "meet & greet", on the main floor, with the artists - tell them what you liked & even thank them personally.

NOTE: Box Office opens at 6:00pm one hour before event AND they'll be plenty of pre-show entertainment starting at 6:00pm. You won't want to miss this. Come early.

Try not to see everything but enjoy what you do see.
