Mud Water's rare success story began on Kickstarter and quickly took the press by storm. The result: three sold-out performances that received standing ovations. The project has been featured on NPR, PBSKQED, and the EAST BAY EXPRESS.

We are now in development of Mud Water II, our first full evening-length concert. If you would like to help us continue this story and make a tax-deductible donation, please contact us. Otherwise, to help support this project, you can:

the mud water project

 

is a multidisciplinary dance theater project comprising of 12 turfers and ballet dancers, as well as music, digital media, and spoken word artists. Utilizing acting and improvisational dance, while exploring real human emotions and life experiences, the project seeks to give the turf dance community opportunities to share its stories, art, and truths in a concert-style setting and to audiences often beyond its reach.


 

The project began in early spring of 2015. It's mission is: (1) to rejuvenate the dance and theatre arts community by pushing the envelope with respect to diversity and in creating sophisticated, cutting-edge work; (2) to celebrate, promote visibility, and support viability of the undervalued street performance art in the San Francisco and East Bay areas; and (3) to traverse the barriers of understanding embedded in class/cultural differences, by facilitating honest dialogue through thought-provoking artistic expression and storytelling.

A NOD TO THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT, IT IS ABOUT A VIVACITY AND grace THAT TRANSCEND TIME, RACE, culture, CLASS - THAT EMERGE IN THE MOST UNPLEASANT AND HARSHEST OF CONDITIONS. though the original intent was to present a JUXTAPOSITION OF BALLET AND TURFING, what took over was a powerful mergence of the two.
