A joyous re-emergence into live performance featuring 18 performers in a celebration of dance, exuberance, and technicolor ball passing! Performances take place in the spacious and airy Pottruck Family Atrium where audience members can be seated or wander throughout the space to view the performance from multiple vantage points. No tickets or reservations necessary. Seating is first come first serve.
Join Garrett + Moulton Productions for four live performances of a new work created by Janice Garrett for 18 dancers commissioned by and to be performed at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF). All performances are free and will take place in the spacious and airy Pottruck Family Atrium. This joyous, celebratory work will be the first live performance event to welcome the community back to the JCCSF. It features the driving rhythms and soaring lyricism of Marc Mellits' music recorded by Quatuor Debussy and will incorporate Garrett + Moulton’s signature Ball Passing and movement choir elements. After each show, audience members are invited to participate in a mini-workshop to learn the art of Ball Passing.
“Our November performances at the JCCSF are a gift to the community at a time when we all long for reconnection and energy,” say Artistic Directors Garrett and Moulton. “Our goal is to uplift, unite and inspire while reaffirming the inter-dependence of the human family and the joy of our collective experience.”
Garrett + Moulton Productions’ dancers for the performances include company members Amy Foley, Nol Simonse, Juliann Witt and Ayana Yonesaka plus guest artists Jeanette Abell, Crystaldawn Bell, Sonja Dale, Claire Fisher, Lucia Flexer-Marshall, Emily Hansel, Caitlin Hicks, ArVejon Jones, Jenna Marie Graves, Samuel Melecio-Zambrano, Emily Morrison, Chelsea Mulholland, Jordan Wanderer and Alice Wells.

Here’s how we’ll stay safe together
Bring your mask, vaccination card and ID. All attendees 12 and older will need to show proof of vaccination before entering the atrium and are required to wear a mask during performances. Currently, mask exemptions are in effect for performers, who will only remove their masks when actively performing and will be socially distanced from audience members.
These performances are made possible with the support of the California Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, San Francisco Grants for the Arts and generous individual donors.
