1310 Mission St.
San Francisco, CA 94103
On the anniversary of September 11th, CounterPULSE presents fresh work by two artists who speak directly to the displacement and transformation inherent to the experience of immigration, and the personal cost and the War on Terror. Together, they weave dance, theater, music, and multimedia into a rich personal tapestry with broad political implications.
A collaboration between Joti Singh's Duniya Dance Company, musician/dancer Boynarr Sow, and painter Daisy Rockwell, Dhoom Dhamaka! explores the individual identities of both those in power and those divested of power by the so-called "War on Terror".

(shrapnel of present time / esquirlas de tiempo presente)
Performance artist Violeta Luna, known for her work with Guillermo Gomez-Peña, presents part two of Border TRIP(tych), a movement, sound and media-based performance-art piece focused on an immigrant's journey as she leaves her home in Latin America and arrives in the US searching for work.
