Silicon Valley Dance Festival: "Aftershock"

Saturday, September 30, 2017

The second annual Silicon Valley Dance Festival highlights the creative side amidst the area's tech-heavy presence, with performances from companies across the West Coast. After sold out performances in its inaugural year, the annual festival returns with an exciting lineup of contemporary dance.

This year's festival will include a range of acclaimed Bay Area choreographers, from established innovators to rising stars in contemporary ballet, modern, Hip Hop and more. SVDF is curated by ZiRu Dances Artistic Director Philein Wang and brings Silicon Valley premieres to Peninsula-area residents as a family-friendly weekend of dance.  

Over the last 10 years, ZiRu Dance has built an extensive network of dancers and choreographers in the Bay Area, China, and beyond, to create a vibrant cross-sample of contemporary dance. The company is invested in giving contemporary dance a home in Silicon Valley, a place famous for its innovative science and technology sector, but lacking in easy access to rich performing arts experiences. ZiRu Dance has distinguished itself through its focus on multi-disciplinary work, collaboration across cultural boundaries, and actively addressing the questions of cultural identity.
