Participant Profile


United States
San Francisco

CounterPulse represents a 25 year legacy of experimental and interdisciplinary dance and performance in San Francisco—no other single space has supported a comparable breadth of performance. Known as 848 Performance Space 1991-2005, the organization premiered many of San Francisco’s most daring dancers and choreographers and was a pioneering venue for experimentation. In 2005, the organization moved into a 95-seat theater in the SoMa neighborhood and re-branded as CounterPulse, as a result of a merger with Bay Area Center for Art and Technology.
