Labor Archives and Research Center's 25th anniversary
In honor of the Labor Archives and Research Center's 25th anniversary, the Archives has commissioned Jo Kreiter and Flyaway Productions to create a dance performance honoring labor. "Sympathetic" is a site-specific performance based on the funeral march for the two workers killed on Bloody Thursday, whose deaths sparked the historic 1934 San Francisco General Strike. The aerial dance will take place on the side of the historic Rincon Annex Post Office building, which features WPA era murals that honor the strike. Directly across from Rincon is 113 Steuart Street, the longshore union headquarters during the strike and where the funeral march began. Flyaway Productions incorporates a building’s features into their choreography, utilizing rigging to create space and movement. Their dances are visually exciting and thought-provoking and the company has received significant press for their work.
The 10-minute dance will be performed twice in the day, with a labor landmarks walking tour of nearby sites in between performances.
