Named by SF Focus as “one of the driving forces of SF’s vital alternative dance movement”, STEAMROLLER performs its signature witty and fearlessly athletic work in new dances by Jesselito Bie, Jennifer Chien and Vong Phrommala. It’s HOT dancer-on-dancer action as three fiercely individual choreographic voices explore modern-day themes of love, family and the anxieties of the post 9/11 society. Produced by JSC’s AIRspace.
MISSION STATEMENT – STEAMROLLER Dance Company creates physically articulate dances that examine how language and mass media shape ideas of race, sexuality and gender. The intersection of artistic and popular culture makes our dances more accessible and our messages more palpable.
COMPANY HISTORY – In 1993, a loosely knit group of artists came together to create guerrilla performances to address the spread of HIV and AIDS to other communities (women, people of color). The company has since restructured, under the direction of founding member, Jesselito Bie, to refine its streetwise athleticism. In addition to various SF parking lots, STEAMROLLER has also presented work in more formal venues such as the Bay Area Dance Festival, the 1996-200 In the Street Festivals, the 1996-2001 San Francisco Lesbian and Gay Dance Festivals, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Festival of Bay Area Dance, Asian American Dance Performances and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica.
