“This particular kind of site-specific project, one that incorporates dance, music, and theatrical elements in untraditional ways, has brought special meaning to the artists and communities that have participated in it over the last 10 years,” says Kim Epifano, Artistic Director of Epiphany Productions and organizer of the annual event, which has become a highlight of the Fall arts season. “It really is ‘Art for Citizens’ because it is free, of high quality, and it makes people fall in love with the city again, or for the first time, if they’ve never been here before.”

Audiences will join tours of the performances on selected MUNI trolley lines along the Market Street corridor, beginning at The Market Street Railway Museum, 77 Steuart Street at Don Chee Way, just south of Embarcadero Plaza, across from the Ferry Building. The audience will board trolleys with SFTD tour guide to take the F, K, L or M MUNI trolley lines, riding up Market Street to Church Street, with dance performances en route. Audience members can take the full tour or see one or two events along the way, at their own pace. Performances are accessible to passersby at no cost, or for those who choose to arrive by car, foot, or bicycle to each site. Bicyclists can make use of a do-it-yourself-bike route map to each location, available at the event’s starting point, end point, and online. All sites are wheelchair accessible (wheelchair accessibility for the full trolley tour is at 11am Saturday and Sunday). Tours depart from the Market Street Museum at the foot of Market Street every 45 minutes, beginning at 11:00 am and continuing to 2:45 pm (11:00 am, 11:45 am, 12:30 pm, 1:15 pm, 2:00 pm, 2:45 pm). Tickets are regular MUNI fare: $2 general, $.75 for children, seniors and persons with disabilities. Tours will be on a first come, first serve basis. Spaces are limited.

Dancers include: Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater, Inkboat, Lizz Roman and Dancers, Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater, Tezkatlipoka Aztek Dance and Drum, Keith Terry & Corposonic, Maru Dojo: Aikido/BJJ and more TBA
