Saturday, March 9 at 8pm and Sunday, March 10 at 7pm Dance Mission Theater presents D.I.R.T. Festival, the biennial social political dance festival now in its fourth year. This year D.I.R.T., which stands for Dance In Revolt(ing) Times, focuses on the theme storm SURGE and features artists exploring ideas and concerns surrounding Global Warming and displacement as a result of environmental change, with a special focus on artists from island nations and front line communities.

The artists performing in D.I.R.T. 2019: storm SURGE - Program A are: Tigre Bailando, Danza Puerto Rico, Patrick Makuakane / Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu, Boomshake Music, Yayoi Kambara and Dancers, Sammay Dizon and Halau Kawainuhi, Hien Huynh and Primera Generacion.

D.I.R.T. Festival Co-Director Stella Adelman explains, "There are many ways that an artist may address such challenges - be it from the content of their choreography, to looking at who has a voice, to their process." Adelman adds, "Climate change is the defining subject of our time," citing a recent UN report that specifies the urgency. She adds, "It is the role of the artist to make sure that the global impact of climate change is on everyone's mind so that we don't become complacent - that we inspire, that we educate, that we 'find joy in the revolution.'"
