Dancing in Sepia
Wright Hall Main Stage Theatre

In the unique voice of choreographer Raissa Simpson (“Pushing The Standard” – San Francisco Chronicle), Dancing in Sepia becomes an eloquent examination of racial representations on stage. Through probing permutations of past imagery, resistance, inter-culturalism and Afrofuturism, Simpson’s rolling set design adds to a stunning sensory landscape for the dancers of UC Davis. Special performances by Simpson’s PUSH, a San Francisco-based professional troupe along with costume designer Kristine Doiel and a musical collaboration between Simpson and UNWOMAN will round out the group.

Performed on Wright Hall’s Mainstage in conjunction with “Outside the Lines 2″ which begins at 8:00 p.m., March 10 through the 12, with a suggested ticket donation of $5. 

Raissa Simpson is Artistic Director of PUSH, a national-touring dance company based in San Francisco and a recent recipient of the 2015 Margrit Mondavi Award, San Francisco Arts Commission and AATAIN, a program supported by the Hewlett Foundation.
