IPTC INFO
CaptionDuniya Dance and Drum Company in collaboration with Ensambles Ballet Folklorico de San Francisco presents: Half and Halves: the Story of the Punjabi-Mexican communities of California An exploration in dance of the little-known cultural legacies of Punjabi-Mexican communities founded in California in the early 20th century inspires the collaboration of Bhangra dancer/choreographer Joti Singh with her company Duniya Dance and Drum Company and Ensambles Ballet Folklorico de San Francisco. Half and Halves takes as its subject matter the establishment and impacts of mixed Punjabi and Mexican families that began in the early 20th century as a result of strict immigration and marriage laws social pressures and conventions and gives the story wings within the rich dance forms and histories of these cultures that are central to the story of California and the West. The story holds particular relevance for Americans today as immigration laws and cultural identities are at the forefront of government policy and the news and the piece takes its name from the slang term for the children of Punjabi-Mexican parents. The performance features 26 dancers and live music has been generously funded by the Creative Work Fund and the San Francisco Arts Commission. The work will feature both Mexican Folklorico dance as well as Bhangra a high energy harvest and celebration dance from Punjab India exploring themes related to farming life marriage immigration and racial and ethnic discrimination. The choreographers also explore dance in this performance that does not neatly fit into one genre or another drawing inspiration from the complex cultural identities of these communities and the issues and challenges they faced. The pieces are all accompanied by live music. 2 performances only! Saturday November 13 7pm Sunday November 14 2pm Tickets are available at: http://www.cityboxoffice.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=1569&c=9&pg=2 $15/advance $20/door
