Best Hybrid Performance Venue San Francisco 2007 - CounterPULSE



1310 Mission

San Francisco, CA 94103


Map & Details>>

In a city known for the mixing of dance and movement with theater, music, spoken word, and any other performance discipline you can think of, CounterPULSE stands out as a great venue to get a peek at how a variety of local artists are pushing the performance boundaries. While every piece might not float your boat, the constant risk-taking and experimentation creates some of the most original and compelling performances the city has to offer. The range of what CounterPULSE takes on is astonishing, not just in its performances but in its constant classes, workshops, and open discussions from artists and the community alike. All of this done in a laid-back, friendly atmosphere. Companies and artists are given the freedom to try something they never thought possible, and you stand a pretty good chance of seeing something you've never seen on stage before.

I agree! CounterPULSE has been incredibly supportive to SO many artists, including Asian American Dance Performances, which has shared a desk in their office space for over a year.

As a performance artist in this city, I've participated in some really exciting shows, and later became a board member, where I have been so proud of the staff and the ground-breaking artists who have worked in the space and make it what it is.
