Get ready for a rambunctious evening of dance when the four performance-long West Wave Dance Festival launches at Z Space. There will be a Dance Mission Theater-curated program called The Beat of 24th and Mission with its own multiethnic, all-woman Dance Brigade and Grrl Brigade, as well as transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey, Afro-Cuban dance from Ramon Ramos Alayo's Alayo Dance Company, goth-robot doll troupe Anna and the Annadroids, Duniya Dance and Drum Company, and contemporary dance company Nicole Klaymoon's Embodiment Project. The dances on the bill are guaranteed to make some noise. Rounding out the evening are hip-hop, taiko, and political dance. The festival continues in three more performances, each with a unique lineup: four commissioned choreographers at ODC's Studio B on Oct. 5, five unexpected pairs of choreographers assigned to create new work together at Z Space on Oct. 21, and four choreographers of contemporary ballet at Z Space on Oct. 28.
