ODC/DANCE

ODC/Dance was formed by Brenda Way in 1971 as a collective of artists at Oberlin College in Ohio where their name (Oberlin Dance Collective) originated. Adventure, a certain irreverence, and the joy of moving were key ingredients to the core philosophy of their founding members.

In 1976, the sixteen dancers, painters, writers, photographers, and musicians of the collective bid farewell to Ohio, piled into a big yellow bus and came west to San Francisco to find a context for their artistic vision and social ideals. 

ODC/Dance is a groundbreaking contemporary arts institution that has established longstanding roots in the San Francisco community.

The iconic New York City-based company will perform a trio of works from their celebrated repertoire. Línea Recta, choreographed by Belgo-Colombian Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, pairs the hallmark passion of flamenco dance with innovative and intricate partnering, performed in collaboration with flamenco guitarist Eric Vaarzon Morel. The evening also features Cuban-American Eduardo Vilaro’s Danzón,which puts a contemporary spin on the national dance of Cuba, and Spaniard Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s colorful, amusing and fast-moving Flabbergast, set to music by Juan García Esquivel.

Founded by National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, Ballet Hispánico has been led since 2009 by Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro, who has infused the organization’s legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America’s changing cultural landscape. Through performances of its internationally-acclaimed Company, innovative dance training programs, and community education activities that inspire individuals of all ages and backgrounds, Ballet Hispánico brings the joy of dance and Hispanic culture to the world.

Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer Dobet Gnahoré has garnered a reputation as one of the most vibrant performers in world music today. As a child, Gnahoré was trained in the music and dance traditions of the Bété people by her father, a well-known performer in West Africa.

Hailed by critics as Africa’s leading star on the rise, her extraordinary talents position her to set the course for the genre. On stage, her voice and charisma have immense audience appeal.

In 2010, she shared an award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance with India.Arie at the 52nd Grammy Awards.
